Othello Tunnels, Hope

4.7
#1 of 19 in Things to do in Hope
Wander through the province's deep gorges and dense forest at Othello Tunnels, a series of former railway routes spanning the Coquihalla River. Built during the early 20th century to connect the region with the coast by train, the park features an array of walkways, bridges, and paths cutting straight through sheer rock cliffs, some of which rise to heights of 91 m (300 ft). Wander the easy 3.5 km (2.2 mi) loop through five different tunnels and you'll find up close views of the rushing river, as well as the area's lush nature. Alternatively, you can cycle the path or fish in the river with the required license. Othello Tunnels is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hope Edition.

  • Note 10 to the place. Splendid nature showing your beauty and strength. Much appreciated by the people who want to go with different companies, whether children, alone or accompanied, and why not with your pet. My wife and I love. It's not complicated access to the Park and the people are always willing to help.

  • Very cool. Canyon. Tunnels. Water color. Rambo. Glad our motel owner told us we must go here. Great views for a short walk. Neat to watch Rambo First Blood when we got home to see some of the filming locations. Lucky to see in the fall with beautiful colors in the canyon.
  • Always a pleasure going there for a random day trip with family or friends. You can easily spend half a day there. A good place to go for just the drive it self.
  • Nice walk/hike. It's amazing how this place was built. Stop by and check it out!
