Notice Affecting the Hope / Coquihalla Area -- Status as of June 3, 2018: The Othello Tunnels (at Coquihalla Canyon provincial park just east of Hope) are OPEN for the summer! Usual winter notice (not in effect): The Tunnels are normally closed for the winter from November to late May. You may be able to use the alternate trail on our maps which bypass the tunnels. The tunnels are scheduled to reopen by May long weekend but are often delayed due to rock slides that occur over the winter that block the trail and tunnel entrances.
