Othello Tunnels

Reviewed By SSADCAD - Vancouver, Canada

One of the hidden gems, definitely is worth a ride. The Waterfalls are grandiose, the tunnels are mysterious and frankly scary - even if you have a flash-light it doesn't help much.. the darkness is overwhelming. have to trust your instincts to take the next step and then the next. Our 2yo enjoyed running through the darkness though and wasn't scared at all..

The Hope Slide

Reviewed By TassieTravellers99 - Launceston, Australia

This historic site is located on the Crows Nest Highway a short drive from Hope. It shows where an earthquake had caused a massive upheaval of rock and mud which had damaged the valley and poured debris up the other side of it. Four motorcyclists were killed in it. Alas from the parking lot we could see nothing more than a rocky slope that looked like any other mountain slope because of the fog. We imagine that in fine weather you would have a much better appreciation of the magnitude of the site.

Art Walk

Reviewed By TassieTravellers99 - Launceston, Australia

Located in the picturesque town of Hope is this collection of chainsaw sculptures and murals scattered around the town. The first carvings overlooking the Fraser River included a wizard and the gnome house, and beavers. There was also a totem pole near here. We headed down Wallace Street completely missing the prospector until we turned around and saw him behind us. We did see Sasquatch Harry across the road and then passed another bear. There was a 2010 sculpture commemorating the torch relay coming through Hope. We did the loop back down Fort St. There was the Tree of Faces and a comical "bearly" escapes where the man was hiding from a bear. There was also an alligator and a horned owl nesting.
There is a good pdf map that can be downloaded from the internet that displays the town of Hope and where the sculptures are located. Quite enjoyable.

Don't hesitate and plan a trip to the tunnels. The walk is short but impressive. The forest and cliffs around it are stunning.

Hope Visitor Centre

Reviewed By johnny2bc - Burnaby, Canada

The Hope Visitor Centre was a short, worthwhile, and informative stop for us during a recent 2-night stay in Hope. We had popped in to take a look at some of the available brochure offerings and the like, ask staff a few questions about some of the local attractions, get some driving and walking directions, and check out a map or two.
Staff were friendly, courteous, and helpful — we were able to acquire all the information we had hoped for, and left with a good selection of brochures, maps, and other information to take back to our car and hotel.
Our visit, though quite brief (as we were heading out of the city at the time, and rather anxious to get on our way), was fun and productive, and we were happy to have made the stop when we did, finding the information very helpful to travelling/activities planned for that day, and onwards over our stay.

Hope Friendship Garden

Reviewed By Steve W - Kidderminster, United Kingdom

We stopped off at Hope on our recent trip across BC and Alberta. On our visit, we called in to the little Japanese style Peace garden, which is located right next to the park, public car park, and municipal hall in downtown Hope.
The little Japanese garden is very well kept and is in beautiful condition. It has a small pond, lots of Japanese acer trees and other plants, and Japanese architecture. A lovely, tranquil little place to pause and reflect.
Well worth a visit if you are in this lovely little town.

Falls Lake

Reviewed By PennaHiker - Pine Grove Mills, Pennsylvania

My wife and I discovered this from a hiking brochure when visiting Hope, BC, Canada. To reach the trail head, take Route 5 north east from Hope, BC to exit 221. The drive is very scenic. After taking the exit, pass under Route 5 and drive the only paved, spur road at the interchange. The spur road's pavement ends at the large parking lot for the trail head (about 500 m). Hike the gravel road over the stream and turn left onto the trail. The trail is about 1 km, paralleling the stream which flows from the lake. The lake is very nice. There are two wooden platforms for tents, making this a nice, easy backpack trip. We had the trail to ourselves on our Wednesday afternoon hike.

Skagit Valley Provincial Park

Reviewed By JMR980 - Canada

Most people haven't even heard of this park! It's about a 50km drive on a well maintained gravel road to get down to it from Hope. Very picturesque provincial camp site at Ross Lake. Well worth the drive, as very few people camp there. Bring bug spray!

Coquihalla Summit Recreation Area

Reviewed By JMR980 - Canada

While getting to this high country area may be a challenge in the winter, it still provides excellent year round back country opportunities. This road is very well maintained throughout the year. Hiking, camping, fishing, with amazing views from the local peaks. Well worth a stop over, instead of just driving through as most people do. The rest stops are clean, and well maintained.
