“Beautiful place with history”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

This is another big scenery place in BC just a few minutes off the Coquihalla Hwy. Historic train tunnels carved out of the granite you can walk through, train tressells to walk or bike, the beautiful crystal clear Coquihalla river flowing by, big mountain scenery. Take a big breath because the oxygen level here is very high. The tunnels are a 10 min walk from the parking area.

“Cool Place in Hot Summer Days”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

It's a popular place in the summer. The first impression seeing the tunnel is the awesome grand scale of things. The rushing river and the mountainous backdrop give you a feel for the old west. And as you enter the tunnel you could feel the rush of cool air. Water drops fall on you from the seepages from above. If you are intrigued by rock formations, this place will rock you but only as a side trip. This is not a whole day thing so plan accordingly. But definitely worth coming if you have never being here.

“Suprising trail trough train tunnels.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Nice trail by train – tunnels. If you're in the area it is worth to visit it. It's not a long walk, so suitable for the whole family. Take a flashlight with you!

“Othello Tunnels of the Old Kettle Valley railway”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

I take every friend or family member who come to visit us in Hope to the tunnels, it is spectacular anytime of year but the spring run off time if my favorite time, the water is rushing so hard you cant hear yourself talking, summer and winter there are small salmon spawning runs where you can see the fish jumping and fighting their way up the river. This area has been used in a few movie scenes Rambo First Blood one of the most famous. This is a must see to anyone travelling through trust me, nice easy level ground walk, only takes about an hour to go through and back again, longer if you take the whole trail hike.
