we rode from OK Falls to Kaleden - the trail is mostly flat and well marked with some "detours" off the original railroad route around private properties. Only a couple hilly sections. We realized when we hit the Kaleden to Penticton section - it was...More

The section with the trestles and two tunnels is stunning and an easy ride. There were a couple of spots with outhouses and benches in this section but not later on. Unfortunately the weather was cool and rainy for a good portion of the time....More

Hi, Ellie. What would you like to know about this attraction? Hi, im a bit confused. How long is the trail? some people take 6 hours one way. you did 24 km return in 4 hours? also where is it best to get on it and hire the bikes? some people say Penticton and others say Myra Canyon? We are bit time poor and running out of time but I really want to do some of this trail.
