Bike the Train Trestles!

CANADA | Tuesday, 3 December 2013 | Views [440]

Kelowna is located in the Okanagan Valley, about 3 1/2 hours from Vancouver, up and over the Coquihalla Hwy. In the winter people head to Big White for amazing skiing and snowboarding. In ths summer it's all about beaches and time on the lake. 

There is an amazing bike & hike up in the mountains on the old train route. The trail is super easy to navigate and takes you over some stunning train trestles 100 feet hight. Directions

We have done the route starting at either end. Personally I liked starting at the Myra Entrance a bit better, but either are fine. The scenery is incredible. The last time we were there, we had the place almost to ourselves. It is rugged, gorgeous and amazing. Everythign Beautiful British Columbia has built its outdoor reputation on.

A total must see and do activity if you are in Kelowna, B.C.
