We have a friend visiting from the UK. Since there hasn't been much snow and it was a sunny day, Othello Tunnels would be a beautiful short walk. However, the tunnels are closed, gated off. Closed due to potential rock fall. You can park and...More

We visited the Othello Tunnels in early September of 2018. Have been in the region several times previously and never heard about these tunnels until a young clerk happened to mention that she loved going there. I have to say we were quite impressed at...More

Caves were gated to due to public safety. Would have scored higher if could have accessed them. Take a flashlight if you are able to get in.

Before reaching the Tunnels, there is a 15 minute trail walk, you will walk along a river, look for an opening on the left side to walk down. Down right beside the river you can take beautiful, Instagram-able pictures of the river, rocks, and landscape....More

These tunnels are in the Coquihalla Gorge and are an amazing feat of engineering, so they are also in a stunning setting. A little uneven underfoot in places but manageable without torches. Well worth the visit.

There is a parking area, however not sure about the coach. As far as I can remember it should be ok. You can always park on the road and walk a short distance to the tunnels .
