This is a nice short walk thru the tunnels to break up the trip on the highway from Vancouver to Kamloops.

Come prepared. Buy one of those wooden train whistles at a joke shop and bring a 3 million candlepower flashlight with you and you're guaranteed to have a riot scaring the crap out of unsuspecting tourists. But more seriously, a flashlight and a sweater is a good idea. It's a nice stroll on a hot day. In the winter months... More

When I first starting coming to Hope about 9 years ago my boyfriend (husband now) took me to the Othello Tunnels. It was fabulous. The idea that so many years ago man created these tunnels. There are always lots of people up there walking with their families and their pets. It is a wonderful day outing. I know that lots... More

We went here once in the fall, and once in the winter. In the winter, the Tunnels are closed, but we didn't know that. The trail is still beautiful though, the river is still flowing, and there are numerous icicles forming around it. Wondrous sight! The mountains look so majestic from here. In the fall, we could walk through all... More

Othello tunnels is an easy and short walk through old railway tunnels carved through the walls of a deep river canyon. You get great views of the valley and the river as you walk through it. They also filmed parts of "Rambo: First Blood" here so you can imagine Sylvester Stallone running along the tracks.

From the town of Hope or from Highway 5, it is only a short detour. Follow the road signs and you will reach a generous parking lot where you can leave your car. From there, it is about a 20 minutes hike through the park, up to where the tunnels start. Hard to tell how long the whole experience might... More

This is a must see if you are traveling through Hope during the summer months. It is a short easy walk and the views amazing. This is gated off during the winter months.

Beautiful nature around à historical place. With a perfect picknick arena. We were happy to have a headlight with us because the tunnels are quit dark.

The tunnels were very interesting and the scenery spectacular. The tunnels are testament to the pioneering spirit of Canadian railroads. Although a huge amount of effort was put into constructing the tunnels, they were abandoned due to rock falls. Still they remain for tourists to walk through and view the spectacular river below. You only need spend a couple of... More
