Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park is home to one of Canada's most interesting feats of railway construction, the Othello Tunnels. Also referred to as the Quintette Tunnels, these five tunnels are set in the magnificent setting of the Coquihalla gorge. Visitors can walk through the hand carved tunnels in this Provincial Park and enjoy the views of the surrounding gorge and admire the perseverance of British Columbia's early settlers to build this stretch of Railway.

Facilities include: Simon's Cafe, Gold Panner Gift Shop, Education Centre, Fudge Factory, Gold Panning, Simon's Wall, Observation Decks & Suspension Bridge.
The park has a large variety of walking and hiking trails which range anywhere from a 15 minute walk to a 5 or 6 day hike.
