Gold Rush Hiking Trails
Many hiking trails are a part of the Trans-Canada rail system or the old Cariboo Gold Rush Trail. A favourite is the abandoned Othello-Quintette Tunnels in the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park. It's an easy gravel trail from the parking lot to the old Kettle Valley Railway bed, now transformed with trestle bridges over the river and through five tunnels cut through sheer granite.
Mountain Biking & ATVing
Mountain bikers, motorcross and ATVers should head for the abandoned mine pit at the end of Nickel Mine Road where they can kick-up all manner of dirt along challenging downhill trails and jumps. BC Buggy's dune buggies are just as fun, either as self-drive adventures or as a guided tour in the back country.
Wildlife & Bird Watching
Eagles, osprey and salmon are always a marvel to see in their natural habitat. During the salmon runs, hundreds of eagles cling to trees along the banks of Fraser River and it's not unusual to see a black bear searching the shores for food.
The parks, especially, are home to various flora and fauna, some rare or endangered, and there are approximately 200 species of birds to enjoy, starting with the Blue Heron sanctuary on Greenwood Island, right across from Hope.
Fishing is abundant. The Fraser River runs with salmon which swim up the Coquihalla and Skagit rivers to spawning channels, while alpine lakes and fast moving creeks are full of rainbow trout. Anglers must be self sufficient in terms of tackle and transport and although Hope has no guiding services, staff at the local outfitting shop are always up to speed on current hot spots, fishing regulations and licenses.
With Manning Park and Hemlock Valley within a half hour drive, Hope is a good base for these two very different mountain playgrounds. The forcus is on family-oriented fun; each offers a variety of outdoor activities.+ More
