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

I grew up in Hope, and grew up going to the tunnels opn a regular basis, well before it was fixed up and became a Provincila Park. Never will get tired of it there. Took some Swiss friends there in July to show them the tunnels...and wouldn't you know it...about 10 minutes before we got there, maintenance people came and... More

My father and I made a stop at the tunnels part way through a road trip.. and were we ever glad. An amazing spot. Take the detour, life is to short not to when something so beautiful is so close!

There are four old railroad tunnels that you can walk to and into. When we were there the walking bridge between tunnels 2 and 3 was closed, so you could only walk through the first 2 tunnels. A nice walk through the woods to get to the tunnels with lots of signage and story boards to read along the way.... More

Unfortunately, when my friend and I visited, the walk beyond the second tunnel was closed. Apparently, there had been a rock fall and there were people surveying while we were there. However, the short walk gave us a flavour of this lovely place - cool and green forest access to the tunnels and fabulous views of the river running through... More

There was a safety issue due to cracks in the trestle foundations. Therefore we could only walk through two tunnels because the rest of the area beyond that was closed to the public for our protection.

Beautiful walk, historically interesting, easy hike. Unfortunately, the bridge needs extensive structural repair and cut off access to half the attraction.

It is 5 minutes' drive from Hope. Plenty of shaded parking places. 1.4 km present walk. This time, one can only walks to the second tunnel, the bridge connecting the rest of the tunnel is closed due to unsafe condition which is unfortunate because from the other side of the bridge is the excellent view of the rumbling water dropping...
