Situated about a 1.5-hour drive and some 150 kilometres directly east of Downtown Vancouver, the idyllic municipality of Hope is easily accessible via car along Highway 1 and the Crowsnest Highway.
Due to Hope's unique geographical location among the heart of the Fraser Valley and at the eastern end of BC's Lower Mainland, this bucolic area is blessed with some incredible natural scenery. To the west flows the scenic Fraser River, while the Coquihalla River also flows alongside the community of Hope.
Boasting some spectacular mountain ranges and peaks in the east, north and south, it's no wonder that Hope overflows with outdoor adventure and experiences. Along with the popular Othello Tunnels, other recreational opportunities include the spectacular Flood Falls and the steep (but shaded) Hope Lookout Trail that offers extraordinary views of the Fraser River and the surrounding area.
Flood Falls is a scenic waterfall that drops from high above and is located just off of Highway #1 near Hope, BC.
A steep hiking route, the Hope Lookout Trail reaches a viewpoint with an incredible view overlooking the town of Hope, the Fraser River, and the surrounding region.
Othello Tunnels east of Hope, BC, follows a 3.5km return trail through a series of old train tunnels and bridges that cut through the solid granite walls and pass over the wild Coquihalla River.
