Myra Canyon Trestles in Kelowna
Had a chance to cycle the re-built trestles that were previously destroyed in the wildfire of 2003. The trestles look like they were built to the original standards that allowed the Kettle Valley Railway to operate around Myra Canyon which is located near Kelowna.
There are 18 trestles in total along with 2 tunnels that skirt around the canyon walls. The views and trail going around were incredible.
Unfortunately because of a recent fire in West Kelowna that started on July 18, 2009 at about 15:00 hours created a haze over the city.
The ride around Myra Canyon took around 45 minutes one way. There are two parking lots, one at each end, pit toilets and information kiosks throughout the trail.
