Ready for an adventure this summer? The popular Othello Tunnels are about to open for the season and we can't wait to check them out! This is a great hiking trail for beginners with little to no experience because it's pretty flat and gradual since it used to be a track for trains. This place actually dates back to the early 1900s when Canadian Pacific Railroad tried to link the coast with the Kootenays by blasting through granite to create a railroad.\nYou can find the Othello Tunnels at Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park in Hope, about a two-hour drive from Vancouver. The hike itself is a breezy 3.5-kilometre loop on a gravel trail. The tunnels on this incredible hiking trail are only open during the summer so you absolutely have to take advantage of this opportunity.\nView this post on Instagram // let's board a plane without no destination. #vancouver #explorecanada #explorebc #mymaviccontest A post shared by C Ø D Y Ȥ I M M E R M A N (@whoischester) on Aug 7, 2017 at 12:36pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram // getting out and enjoying time away from “reality” is very important 👌🏼 I find myself trying to get away from everything any chance I get 🏃🏼♂️ having so many beautiful places to explore in BC is always a good excuse to sneak away as well 😜 happy Monday fam, I hope y’all have a wonderful week 🙏🏼 #mondayvibes #droneporn #hellobc A post shared by C Ø D Y Ȥ I M M E R M A N (@whoischester) on Jul 9, 2018 at 1:55pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram meet me at the end of the tunnel . . . #explorebc #vancitywild #vancitybuzz #dailyhivevan #othellotunnel #hopebc #vancouvertrails #adventuretime #vancouverlife #vancityvibe #vancityfeed A post shared by ~ g i a n ~ (@wasab.gi) on Aug 28, 2018 at 10:11pm PDT\nThis is one of the most iconic day hiking trips you could take in B.C. The combination of the tunnels, bridges, and rugged Rocky Mountains make this place look incredible both IRL and in your photos. Imagine yourself back in the early 1900s here and what it must have been like to build this incredible railroad trail.\nView this post on Instagram Just like a dream... —— #hope #othello #othellotunnels #lowermainlandhikers #vancouvertrails #hikesnearvancouver #explorecanada #explorepnw #pnwisbest #cascadia #cascadiaexplored #pnw #pnwlife #stayandwander #optoutside #getoutside #beautifuldestinations #awakethesoul #wildernessculture #theoutbound #roamtheplanet #lifeofadventure #pnwonderland #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #agameoftones #ilovebc #discoverbc #travelbc #beautyofbc A post shared by Joshua Michael Domino (@jdoms.pizza) on Apr 3, 2019 at 12:23am PDT\nView this post on Instagram finally got to check this one off the list this summer | shoutout to my road trip pal @mailimichon A post shared by t a i (@tailinmichon) on Nov 3, 2018 at 9:58am PDT\nThe only thing about this hike is that you have to be fearless. You can't be scared of the dark and you can't be scared of hikes. Bridges cross high above dangerous rivers with jagged cliff edges and the tunnels can get a little spooky. Definitely bring a flashlight with you and if you think that's lame then just pretend you're like Nancy Drew or Indiana Jones exploring and looking for clues.\nView this post on Instagram #othellotunnels#BC#britishcolumbiacanada#hellobc#tourismBC #hopebc A post shared by geoff bevanpritchard (@gbevanpritchard) on Apr 1, 2019 at 1:36pm PDT\nRight now, the plan is to have this trail open and ready to go for the May long weekend, but last year it didn't open for the season until closer to June. For the latest updates on the trail and to find out more, check out the BC Parks website for Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park.\nWe strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures.
