We visited Myra Canyon on Victoria day long weekend. Unfortunately for us the weather was quite cloudy with smatterings of sun.
The drive to the parking lot at Myra Station is a little off road, gravelly and bumpy, and a few vehicles went extremely slowly, which is probably advisable. Our bike rack began rattling and actually scratched the car, so make sure you tighten all straps before taking this road.
The trail itself is quite special. Very flat and easy even for unfit people such as myself. We cycled the entire 24km from parking lot to the last trestle and back, and were a little out of breath by the end, but we're not particularly fit people. I would advise taking a decent supply of water though, as there is nowhere to find any on the route and it can get warm up there.
The trestles themselves are quite nice, well maintained and you feel very secure on them. No problems stopping to take photographs of the beautiful scenery on them.
The one sad thing about the bike ride is seeing the amount of trees that had been decimated by the fire back in 2003. Whilst the views are still extremely nice along the trail, you can't help but imagine how much nicer it would be without acre after acre of black, spindly, dry and leafless trees. Whilst obviously this is nobodies fault and there is no way to fix this other than time, it took a little bit away from the experience.
Overall though, this is the perfect trip for anybody wanting to take an easy bike ride/hike in a unique and scenic area. The length of the trail is long enough for fit people, but not too long for the less fit crowd.
One nice addition would be some more investment into the trail amenities though. Some restrooms along the way would be a good addition, as well as a place to fill up your water bottle (or just to take a drink). Considering this is one of the main attractions of Kelowna (and the main reason we went), there doesn't seem to be much investment there.
