Othello Tunnels, Hope

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.
