Wow, we are very impressed. This park is a must when travelling in the hope area. Easy access off freeway, quiet, level and very scenic. An engineering marvel dating back to 1915. Come early as it gets busy in aft with minimal parking for its popularity. Will definitely return!

We rode on a rail grade path from Hope. Bicycle friendly train . Go early in the day to avoid crowds in the tunnel. Regulation to walk bike in the tunnel Highly recommended. Having bike light is a good idea. If on a bike it is an easy ride from Hope

These tunnels were blasted out of the rock to build a railway. This was done in 1916, when technology for such a task was still quite primitive. There is a river in a deep chasm next to the tunnels. Even though it was raining when we visited, this was an impressive site, definitely worth the visit. There is a fair... More

Very cool attraction. Well worth the walk. Beautiful scenery, bridges and tunnels. My 9 year old son loved it too!

I’ve never wanted Canada to carry a history of castles and crusades more than arriving at the Othello Tunnels. Firstly, “Othello Castle” is a cool sounding name for a medieval keep, so much so that there really is one (in Cyprus). Both the real castle and these tunnels are named after the same work by Shakespeare. Officially called the Coquihalla... More

There are no signs so extremely happy when we inadvertently made a wrong turn. Spent approximately 2 hours walking through the 5 tunnels & along the river canyon. They have 5-6 informative display boards describing the making of the tunnels. What's even better is its free! Well worth the stop! Enjoy!

They dug railroad tunnels out of solid bedrock! Now the tunnels, each section named after a Shakespearean character are free from rails but full of adventure. The views are breathtaking and the history intriguing. The ingenuity it took to build these massive tunnels and bridges is obvious. Great for walkers, adventurers and history buffs!

I was not sure if this detour would be worth the hassle, but it was. I was really happy to find somewhere so neat that is still free. We followed signs and found the location - about five minutes out of town up a little winding road. In the parking lot there were picnic tables, garbage cans and drop toilets.... More

A well kept historical site showing man's ingenuity at conquering nature at the start of the 20th C. Several display boards with useful and interesting info. A great walk through the tunnels and over some bridges. Excellent scenery along the river canyon. FREE.

Great place to stop on route to Vancouver. Walking through the tunnels is fun and there are information boards to learn about the tunnels. It is a bit of a drive from the main freeway, so not great if you are limited for time.
