The Myra Canyon Trestles in Kelowna, BC are a spectacular highlight for hikers and cyclists on the Kettle Valley Rail Trail (KVR) and one of the crown-jewels of the Trans Canada Trail. Over 50,000 cyclists and hikers each year enjoy the breathtaking mountain scenery while exploring the 18 stunning wooden trestles bridges and two tunnels along a 12 km section of rail trail in Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park. Located just 40 minutes outside of Kelowna, BC the rail trail between the parking lots at Myra Station and Ruth Station is flat, well-signed, immaculately maintained, and suitable for the entire family. The trail winds along the steep sides of Myra Canyon, providing spectacular views of the forested river valley, the blue waters of Okanagan Lake, and the town of Kelowna beyond. You can discover the scenic beauty of this natural wonder at your own pace or take a guided tour, and there are several options for bicycle rentals in the area. Allowing plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and take a few photos, exploring on foot can take 3-3.5 hours, whereas the loop can easily be completed in 2-2.5 hours on a bicycle. We enjoyed spectacular fall colours will hiking through Myra Canyon, but the park is open year-around and offers spectacular scenery in all four seasons.
