The Trestles in Myra Canyon can also be reached by taking June Springs Road in Kelowna and then Little White Forest Service Road to the KVR and parking at the parking spot on the KVR.  After you park then head north along the KVR, hopefully you have a bike as getting to the trestles from this end will take a little longer.
