Just FYI...due to a recent rockslide you can now only access 2 of the 4 tunnels. A connecting footbridge is no longer deemed safe. I was disappointed to come all the way here to find this out. It was great to see the first two tunnels but it may impact your decision to come here.

These are abandoned train tunnels that go right through the mountains. It's an easy walk, but a good idea to bring a flashlight. Note-these were very difficult to find - even with GPS! The road signs are also not much help. I recommend stopping in Hope and asking for specific directions as they are definitely worth finding.

We visited the tunnels on recommendation. So glad we went as got some fab pictures. Interesting history as well as knowing that the Rambo films were shot here. Its free, could take a picnic and sit by the river if desired. Glad we went!

We were visiting family in Abbotsford and were looking for something to do. Due to time constraints, Hells Gate was not feasible so we decided to take a "peek" at the tunnels. We are so glad we did. The park is incredibly clean and the local community patrol watches your car. They just ask for a donation. Lovely couple that... More

If you are anywhere near Hope B.C., the Othello Tunnels are a must see. I have never seen anything like it. Just stunning. So unique and it's free! Walk through the tunnels where in the early 1900's a train used to run. It is unimaginable that they were able to construct a railway through here at that time. Right through... More

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
