Kelowna, BC – September 2017 – Myra Valley Trestles

High above Kelowna, British Columbia is the Myra Valley Trestles, a former rail line that has become a ‘rails to trails’. What makes this one special is it runs across 18 trestles and two tunnels in the 11 kilometer route.

The trestles have had decking added for easier riding.

The trestles are marked with both a sequential number and the distance from Midway BC, reminding riders of their previous use.

The air was hazy from the numerous forest fires throughout BC.

There were a couple very long, curved trestles made out of steel.

The tunnels were short enough you didn’t need lights to see.

The Myra Valley Trail is easily the best bike trail I have ever seen.
