Ladner Creek Trestle
Location: The Ladner Creek Trestle hike is a small section of the historic Kettle Valley Railway. The trailhead is accessed from a pullout along the Coquihalla Highway, between Hope and the Coquihalla Summit.
The trail is easy to follow but has a few steep sections with loose dirt. It only takes about 30 minutes to reach the trestle and a decommissioned tunnel. The trail is easy enough, except for the final 100 meters of the trail, which has some precarious sections. The final stretch may not be suitable for children or anyone unsure of their footing.
You reach a nice viewpoint of the trestle before the difficult trail begins. So, you can get a nice look at the trestle without having to walk all the way to the base of it, if you don’t want to.
The old trestle itself is an impressive sight, towering above Ladner Creek.
We don’t recommend this hike when the trail is covered in snow as it only becomes more dangerous.
