High above Kelowna the Trans Canada Trail runs along the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR).  The most famous stretch of the KVR near Kelowna is the Myra Canyon Section but between Naramata and Myra are many more “must see” sections of the KVR.

All of the sections could be biked in a day and if you can find a ride for you and a bike and a couple friends, bring lots of water and bike the entire section from Myra to Naramata in a day.  It is downhill all the way and if you start early you will have lots of time to stop and explore many of the interest points.

Bellevue Creek Trestle is a large trestle that spans Bellevue Creek.  The quickest way to get to the trestle is from Gillard Forest Service Road.

In Kelowna BC, take Gillard FSR and traavel 9 km up the dirt road to get to the KVR.  At the intersection -approx. 9 km – up Gillard, go left (north) to Bellevue Creek and Lorna trestles, go right (South) to Chute Lake and the Rock Ovens regional park.
Bellevue Creek Trestle – Part of the Trans Canada Trail near Kelowna BC. Follow the Trail North to Myra Canyon where the stunning Myra Trestles Have been rebuilt after the 2003 wild fire burnt most of them.
