August long weekend. As you might imagine, everyone seemed to be at othello tunnels.
Parking lot was very full, even the designated bus parking was getting used, with the odd person taking a chance parking in "no parking" zones. road was jammed almost up the the intersection with parked cars.Very busy. Steady stream of people along the wide flat trail. If I did this again, which is likely, I would pick spring or fall, and not a long weekend.
The walk to the tunnels was brief and awe inspiring at both the cliffs and river below, but the engineering and efforts it must have taken to be able to make these tunnels, is unfathomable.
Pretty dark in some, gravel surface in most, plenty of photo ops.
Loop trail is another story.3.3 km of trail, pretty good elevation gains, no stairs, where there should have been some.bring plenty of water, hiking shoes, and a good chunk of time.For those who are looking for a weekend workout, this was great! For those who just want to see the tunnels and chill, trust me, don't attempt this hike unless you a have a reasonable degree of fitness.Steep paths closer to the parking lot, roots and rocks make it a bit of a dance in some places, rest benches at the top of each hill. sign said picnic tables on the trail, none to be seen.Great views, massive trees, good hike if you know what you are getting yourself into.

    Went here July 12. It was a bit crowded. If you want to get some exercise you can take the Hope-Nicola trail about a 1/2 KM past the last tunnel. The loop takes you back to the parking lot. You'll get some amazing views and lose the crowds.

        The Othello tunnels are an absolute pleasure. The trail is flat but can be a bit rocky in the tunnels (not a good one for flip flops or heels, like I saw some people wearing!). The views from the trail are all totally unlike most things you can see in the Fraser Valley, from the raging river to the impressive rock faces. Well worth the detour on your next trip over the Coquihalla.

          Did the basic Othello Tunnels hike April 22nd. The tunnels are officially still closed but people were jumping the fence to walk through them. Tunnels are impressive as is the surrounding scenery - very flat & easy hike. You can also do a loop trail that goes up on the KVR that's a bit longer.
