    1. It’s definitely a favourite of ours. We have only done sections, though, and not the whole piece all at once. I would like to try that once I retire. It’s really a beautiful trail; I hope you’re able to hike or bike it some time. Cheers.

  1. I wouldn’t “minded” a bit
    If i weren’t old and unfit….
    But why hike that far
    To be where you are
    When I can see it from whee I sit?

    P.S. Just joking. There’s no substitute for being there (though your posts bring
    us the next best thing).

    1. It’s now a fantastic trail with fabulous views. Years of neglect had followed after the railway shut down in the early 90s, but when someone died while walking across one of the old train bridges, the trail was restored and safetied for hiking, walking and biking and re-opened in 2008. Cheers.

  2. Lovely photo and interesting (if sad) backstory to the trail. Many ex-railway lines in England are now hiking and biking trails too. The expansion of railways here got quite crazy before Mr Beeching famously shut down many unprofitable lines in the 1960s.

    1. Thank you very much. That’s often the case, isn’t it? The infrastructure has to go into decline (and in this case someone died) before the repurposing occurs. It is now such a beautiful trail and the views so fantastic. A little or a lot of hiking can be enjoyed. Cheers.

  3. Ah! when I went with friends into the Similkameen Valley, near Princeton, we also walked a very small bit of the KVR Trail — what fun to see this, and think about the continuity of trail, one end to the other…

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
