The Myra Canyon Trestle Society is dissolving and will be closing its Website effective November 1, 2022. The Society would like to thank the users of the Website for their interest in the Society, and also for donations that were made to support the work of the Society over the years.
After months of preparation MCTRS opened one of the KVR construction era camps to the general public. The camp, named after the 1912 contractor E A Morrissey, is one of two camps run by Morrissey in Myra Canyon.
In 2007 the Society and the University of British Columbia Okanagan co-sponsored an historical archaeological dig at the site.
Myra Canyon Trestle Restoration Society (MCTRS) is looking for people who are interested in becoming involved in the Society as members, and especially as Directors within the Society. Please contact us if you are interested in supporting the preservation of the Myra Canyon by joining MCTRS.
Yes, Myra Canyon Trestles have now been opened again by BC Parks for day use only, effective July 1, 2020. So we can all go for some glorious fresh air, beautiful scenery, wildflower viewing, and even some possible wildlife viewing opportunities.
Effective May 14, 2020, BC Parks has reopened many parks for Day Use Only. This includes the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park. However, it is only partially opened, and the very popular Myra Canyon Trestles and Railway trail between Myra Station and Ruth Station,
BC PARKS has now closed ALL BC Provincial Parks. This closure includes the Myra Canyon. Please respect the closure and stay out of the park until further notice. Thank you and stay safe.

As at April 13, 2019, the trail is mostly dry. There is still snow across the trail in the dark cuts. Several trees are across the trail but it is possible to navigate around them. Some minor rock falls have happened over the winter.
We will soon be sending out a notice for our annual AGM to be held on April 11th, 2018. This is the 25th anniversary of MCTRS, and along with regular business we will have a PPT presentation acknowledging people, events and activities from 1993 to 2018!
