The Kettle Valley Railway was a railway that ran across southern Bristish Columbia through Myra Canyon and operated during the first half of the 20th century. It was finally abandoned in 1989 with portions converted into a recreational trail. Sadly, a 2003 forest fire destroyed 14 of the 18 original wooden trestle bridges in Myra Canyon. They have since been rebuilt and the trail was restored and open again in 2008.

These photos are from my first trip to the Kettle Valley Railway. I rented a bicycle at the trail head and spent a few hours riding its length before enjoying dinner at a local winery. It is definitely worth doing if you ever find yourself in the Okanagan.
