Bring your camera and bring lots of sun screen and water. You'll love it - guaranteed! If you have a chance, ride along the KVR - it is a once in a lifetime experience.

“Myra Canyon”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We were worried about taking a brand new car up to Myra Canyon but the folks at the Visitor Information Centre said it would be OK and it was - no potholes and wide enough to pass another car. There are washrooms at the start of the trail and one half way along. Bikes were available for rent for $40; two of us shared one to take turns going to the end (12 km each way), 2 of us hiked which was fine as we saw the 'best' trestles.by hiking 6 km there and back. Gorgeous views.
The elevation makes it much cooler than down in Kelowna. Wearing shorts in May which was fine down below, we wished we'd worn long pants or capris and had wind breakers but kept warm by keeping moving..A fabulous day out..

Very easy bike ride with spectacular views. Photo ops you just won't get in too many places like this one.

“Easy bike ride with a Fabulous View”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

IT is FREE... Take your family, friends, or mother in-law to see a part of the historic Kettle Valley railway line. and go through a short tunnel. We usually start in Kelowna and take KLO road by driving past Gallaghers canyon and taking the forest road in and parking at Myra Canyon, it takes about 1hr 30 min to bike ride to a turning point and see most of the canyon and valley. Great place to spend a summer day and have a picnic along the way.

“Great hiking/biking”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A rough drive up the old dirt road drops you at the parking lot. Use the bathrooms before you head out, there are none on the trails. Gorgeous views, easy flat walking (it's an old rail trail, so no steep grades), and some very impressive trestle bridges en route.

My favourite time to visit is in late spring or fall - it gets very hot and dusty in the summer. Make sure you bring hat, water, and sunscreen.
