Was hesitant to go with two boys (age 7 and 10) unsure of what there would be to keep their interest but wow- was this place cool! Once you get to the tunnels (about a 1km walk from parking) the views are spectacular! The tunnels are dark and a little spooky which added to the fun but getting to the... More

It's a bit of a drive to get here and you do start to think 'am I really going the right way?' as the road gets smaller and smaller on the drive to the entrance. But this is definitely worth going. My 4 year old boy is a train enthusiast and the chance to walk through railway tunnels (in the... More

Great wide accessible trails, very flat, so good for all ages. Spectacular scenery right beside the river. An inexpensive family outing with the added benefits of hiking.

This is a great place for a short trip if you want to break a long car journey. A walk of about 1 km from the car park takes you to the first of several tunnels driven through the rock within a canyon. Bridges take you over the river which, when we went in early June, was very impressive. There... More

If you visit Hope, BC or pass by Hope but with 1-2 hours time available around there, this place should be a must see spot. A short leisure walk from parking lot to the tunnel head, 4 sections of tunnel with great river & valley views in between each tunnels. Easy walk but the floors are not always smooth, better... More

Spectacular. Waters in full flood and the enormity of the original construction is amazing. Apparently they took the passenger trains through at night so as not to alarm them! If you go go in August or September you can see the salmon run. We are both golden oldies and found the walk ok but take a torch.

The landscape in this area of BC is beautiful and you can get some really lovely pictures walking the path. There were informative panels along the path giving background and historical information about the tunnels which was interesting. Really enjoyed this stop on the trip.

The Othello Tunnels near Hope are very beautiful. These tunnels were created for the Kettle Valley Railway line but usage discontinued early 1900s. They go through Coquillaha river gorge and there were 2 trestle bridges which are now pedestrian walkways. The views of the river rapids are incredible. We visited in early June so the waters were still high and... More

An out of the way place, but the short walk to the tunnels and then through each and over the river was amazing! An unbelievable photo opportunity and was a peaceful experience.

Growing up mere minutes from the tunnels I was lucky enough to have experienced them many times prior to them becoming a real tourist destination. The location was used for much of the jungle scenes in Rambo - First Blood and is an absolutely gorgeous area. An easy walk for those who like lush scenery and roaring rapids. On your... More
