Teaching my teenage son to drive has been an experience to say the least. We set forth for some highway practice and picked the Othello Tunnels as our destination. What a stunning place! And to think this was masterminded between 1913-1916! “Lower me in a...More

This is a beautiful place to visit. Stunning views. Very easy flat hike, suitable for all ages. The old tunnels are great, perfect to learn a bit about the area and how the train track was built. The views of the river from the bridges...More

Visited Othello Tunnels. Traversing through the tunnels is a very cool experience that I would recommend to anyone in the area. There is also a good hike that will take you up the hillside, for a peaceful lookout at the peak and before descending again.

The tunnels look great but they are closed in the winter. You can still walk up to the tunnels and there is a loop route but it's quite deep snow.

Go along Highway 5 going east and take the Othello Road exit and head back toward Hope. Signage is good and the tunnels are easy to find.

There’s a short loop and a longer loop. I don’t remember the distances though. I think the short one is maybe around 2km. The longer one might be more like 5km or so.
