KVR / Trans Canada Trail
The KVR Trail, which is part of the Trans Canada Trail, follows the route of the former Kettle Valley Railway along Okanagan Lake. This decommissioned railroad has been repurposed as recreational trails and is very popular among walkers, runners, cyclists and sightseers.
You’ll explore trestles and tunnels while passing through varied landscapes with rich cultural and historic artefacts. It even leads you past wineries for some sampling pit-stops.
