Description Of This Tour

KVR Tour will be a drive and hike combination.  It includes about 4. 5 km of walking in total over three different areas. The longest walk is 3. 6 km walk over the top of the big Adra Tunnel with lunch at the Adra picnic kiosk. Cars will be driving on the old rail bed. Mostly flat walking on rail grade. There is about one km of walking on an old jeep trail to walk over the tunnel to see the exhaust stack.

Meet at Museum parking lot to be guided out to Glenfir trail head. See the rock bake ovens from the old railway construction era, see the 1602-foot long Adra Tunnel and the site of the Adra Section station site. Total tour time is about 4 hours. Bring water, food/snacks and have good walking shoes. Kids if they come, may get tired before the end. Be prepared.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
