The place is a fairly easy walk through several dark tunnels and across bridges, with spectacular views of the Coquihalla Canyon. There are also many signs scattered about that tell you about the history of the railway tunnels, which were interesting to learn about.

Nice short walk through some of Canada's greatest history! The tunnels are spectacular but the views are even better. A great way to kill a couple hours!

It'd sn easy walk to the tunnels. Originally built as railway tunnels but now disused. However the views of the raging river are well worth the walk. Easy wslk for kids too. Use your phone torch for extra light of you need.

These tunnels are well worth a visit. Not only for their historic status but also this was the site of the Rambo: First Blood movie. The separation between the two tunnels is the sight of the memorable scene where the helicopter was used to shoot...More

The tunnels are 'officially' closed for the winter (not sure of the exact months) but if you're adventurous, the left side of the first gate has a fairly easy climb around (done it).

Is this wheelchair/stroller accessible?

Response from Steven B | Reviewed this property |
Yes this is a gentle walk, the terrain can be a bit rough just loose gravel, probably easier with a stroller than a regular wheelchair... it is also quite dark in one of the tunnels!
