Western Kettle Valley Railway
473 km point-to-point from Kelowna to Merritt, BC
Mapped by Brian Kennelly
A very picturesque multi-day tour of the British Columbia interior. The route passes through the Okanagan cities of Kelowna, Penticton, and Oliver and the perimeter communities of Rock Creek, Princeton, and Merritt. Most of the route follows the Kettle Valley Rail trail with some gravel Forest Service Roads and pavement links. There are four significant but friendly climbs with scenic and rewarding descents. All the communities provide accommodation and resupply opportunities with many camping facilities nearby or at the many Recreation Sites and Provincial Park campsites along the trail.
