Located in the hills above Kelowna, BC, Myra Canyon is a beautiful and historic section of the Kettle Valley Railway, originally built by hand at the turn of the last century. This impressive landmark is now a world-famous hiking/cycling trail, highlighted by two tunnels, eighteen trestle bridges, and breathtaking views.

The hat that’s always in style! This striking hat’s trestle-inspired twists wind their way from brim to top before transitioning into a sophisticated twisted-rib crown. A faux fur pompom adds a fun finishing touch.
