We originally went out and intended to do a short walk, but we enjoyed it so much and went for a 10k loop instead. Will definitely return and bike a bigger portion of it!

This is going to be one of the trails that I may never forget. You come out of downtown, head through 2 blocks of residential, turn a corner and there you are on KVRT. Whoo Hoo - it is quite easy and ride back downtown is a dream. The views of the city, the lake, vineyards are simply awesome. This a must if you are in Penticton.

We hiked in two directions on two days, starting early to beat the heat. The trail is, of course, flat. It is well-maintained and has nice benches with lake views, and the occasional porta- potty. Other rail trails could learn the benefit of benches. (Are you listening, Kelowna?)
We enjoyed our hikes and will return at some point.

We walked along the lake shore to connect with the Kettle Valley Railway Trail. We walked north on the trail which in that area followed the lake closely. The trail was well graded and easily walk-able. It was very busy with runners, walkers and cyclists. A great place to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.

We reserved 4 bikes from Myra canyon rentals in the park. The old trestles and CPR tunnels were so much fun to navigate. The scenery was fantastic. Bring a snack have a picnic , lots of chipmunks on the trail.

The history of southern Okanagan is very facinating. The diversity in agriculture and mining and the persaverance of the people is amazing

The trail in the Myra Canyon area is in great shape. Unfortunately, the trail north and south of this area is on poor shape for recreational cyclists. There are rocks, potholes, loose gravel and loose soft sand in places. You need big knobby tires on your bike, but they may not save you from a fall, especially on the soft sandy areas. These areas of the trail are designated for multi-vehicle use, such as ATVs, which churn up the surface. Not recommended for the faint of heart!

Awesome experience even for a 58 year old in decent physical shape. August 2019 bike ride. Trail from Myra to the end of the tunnels and trestles was just fantastic! Beautiful views! The next stage to Chute Lake had some rough areas with deep water worn areas complete with sharp edged rocks...some sandy areas deep enough to cause some riding challenges. Great views of Kelowna, Peachland and Okanagan Lake, however...take some extra time to enjoy this stage. From Chute Lake thru the “Ovens” area to the area just north of the tunnel near Naramata...this stage was very challenging due to the rugged trail which was largely sandy with rough rocky areas due to the amount of motorized off-road vehicles permitted on the trail (really too bad for cyclists and hikers). No room for riding errors here, your last mistake might be troublesome, physically. From the tunnel near Naramata to Penticton was beautiful. Great segment of trail and awesome views of the area including riding among the orchards. Stop at a winery...or a few of them...Lol! We had a great time but had to ride carefully through much of the trip. Would do again.

Great little excursion for the whole family. A lot of fun and incredibly scenic. Many Trestle bridges to cross and the easy easy easy slope makes this doable for every age. I highly recommend this experience if you are in the Okanogan.

Weve biked Myra Canyon near Kelowna and the section from Penticton to Glenfir Station north of Naramata.
Myra Canyon and from Penticton to to the "little tunnel" north of Naramata are stunning, very well groomed and can be ridden even by novice riders. Not to be missed if you are in the area. However, a lot of the KVR is nowhere near this level of grooming and this is not communicated in any map that I have so far seen. North of the litte tunnel the trail is multi use so used by atvs and dirt bikes and indeed some cars. It is rocky, uneven and in parts covered in sand so you spend a lot of time scanning your path ahead to avoid coming off your bike. Some great views but you have to concentrate and this section is not for the novice or nervous rider. You need a decent mountain bike with good tires.. the trail is not suited for road bikes with narrow rims or, for most people, lighter cross trail models and I would not recommend if you are towing children in a chariot. They will be bounced around a lot. I would guess (tho someone may correct me) you will experience similar rough trail condiitons up to the Myra Canyon section. We stopped at the Adra tunnel. If you like that kind of gravel/rocky riding ..great but it is not for everyone.
