Lorna Trestle on the Kettle Valley Railway

Lorna Trestle is the only trestle in on the KVR in the Kelowna section of the historic railway that sits in it’s truly original state.  The decaying trestle still looks glorious even if it cannot be used.  It stands (barely) beside the newly adjusted railway bed near Gillard Forest Service Road.
