We walked to the tunnels, only to find them gated closed for the late fall-winter season. Very disappointing. We did climb around the first gate and went through to the middle smaller tunnel...what a sight in between the tunnels, on the sunny day we had.

I went there with friends. Great hiking trial. Not too long, not too short. Tunnels look great in rainy weather. It is really worth to visit Hope and walk through this area. There are many great photo opportunities. Free parking.

The tunnels allow you to go from Hope to Boston Bar and return. They are just part of the trip...nothing special.

We visited in May 2014, before the recent rock fall which has apparently closed off several of the tunnels and a bridge, and it was a great experience. The tunnels are amazing works of engineering/railway tunnel construction - a real brush with history. Cold, a bit wet from drips here & there, dark & spooky - the flashlight recommendation is...

Only two tunnels are currently open, but they were quite interesting. The trail is quite flat and easy. Bring a camera.

What a cool place but unfortunately only two tunnels are now accessible and no bridges because the first bridge onthe trail may collapse at anytime. Having said that it is a beautiful walk along the river to the first two tunnels. I would recommend using GPS when driving to the park, even though it is only about 5k's from the... More

Walk along the short track in this beautiful environment and marvel at these man made wonders, alongside the beautiful natural environment. Unfortunately only the first 2 tunnels were open when we visited, but still worth it! Bring a torch.

I was a little disappointed that tunnels 2 and 3 were closed because of structural issues, but it was beautiful nonetheless. There are picnic tables in the parking lot area to enjoy a meal which was really nice.

Learn about how the tunnels were built and enjoy the walk. The engineer Andrew McCullough was an avid reader of Shakespearean literature, and used characters such as Lear, Jessica, Portia, Iago, Romeo & Juliet to name stations. You'll see some of these signs along the Coquihalla Highway. Although one of bridges is closed, it is still a great walk. You'll... More
