Myra Canyon is quite a unique mountain bike trail as it includes 18 trestles (bridges) and 2 tunnels through the mountain on the old Kettle Valley railway which is several hundred kilometers long. Myra canyon is located near Kelowna in British Columbia and the tracks date back to the early 1900’s when silver was discovered near Nelson, BC.
The railroad officialy opened in 1915 but in later years the economic importance of the line dwindled and some sections were phased out and by 1990 the last of the railway lines was abandoned. But thanks to many volunteers over the years the trestles have been rebuilt on a number of occasions with the last being 2003 when many were destroyed by forest fires and are now open to the public to explore either by foot or by bike.
