Hiking Trail Landmark
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.

  • Easy to get to and pretty accessible area. Beautiful walk, and a must-visit for locals and tourists alike.
  • Great place to go for a walk and lunch. Came here on a school trip and will always remember the scenery.
  • If you like the sound of rushing water and the beautiful sight of mountains then this is the place to check out! Tunnels we're closed but was able to go through it.
  • Fantastic spot during winter to enjoy the ice and snow formations. Extremely crowded in the summer, but still definitely worth the visit.
  • Great place to ride bicycles. Or have a walk through the tunnels. 🇨🇦
