Thanks for the reminder about the Othello tunnels. I've planned on going out there for a long time now but haven't made it yet.

Nice pics...

Great pics, we whizzed past the Othello Tunnels last weekend, and when I asked what's there, I was told tunnels.... didn't sound too exciting, but after seeing your pics, I kinda wished we'd stopped to check them out!

Are the tunnels open only to hiking, is it on an old railgrade? Can't remember which one that was going through there. That would be cool to ride through on the quads if it's part of an old mainline. Not being lazy, I'd hike into them too, just like to include awesome places like this with quadding! :D

The tunnels are on the old Kettle Valley Railroad, they are now a provincial park, I've seen hikers and mountain bikers when ever I go there, pretty sure it's not open for quadding, here's a link http://www.thekvr.com/othello.php

Looks like a 1990 caprice classic. Got the same car sitting in the driveway collecting dust for the past 2years.
