A trestle and trail inspection was carried out by the Myra Canyon Trestle Restoration Society and BC Parks on April 29, 2013. The inspection only covered about half of the Myra Canyon as there is still 1-2 feet of snow in the rock cuts and that limited access.
We anticipate reconstruction of Trestle 3 to proceed throughout the summer and into the fall. When weather permits, the feasibility of a bypass route around trestle 3 will be looked into. Currently, the only bypass route is around the entire Myra Canyon along a forestry road.
As of April 12, 2013 – Trestle 3 in Myra Canyon has been damaged as a result of a rockslide and will be closed until further notice. The trail is impassable at trestle 3. The remainder of the Myra Canyon Trail is open to the public.
BC Parks have closed the Myra Canyon Trail between Myra and Ruth until further notice. There has been significant damage to Trestle 3 from a rockfall rendering it unsafe, and the rock face requires evaluation for stability.
