Vancouver to Hope
The Trans Canada Trail is a 28,000 km-long trail network stretching across Canada that connects three oceans. The Trail begins in Victoria on Vancouver Island and forks northward and east across the Salish Sea. Board a ferry to Vancouver and explore its expansive networks of trails, including the rainforest paths of Stanley Park, the 28km Seawall and the countless tracks crisscrossing the mountains on Vancouver’s North Shore.
Just east of Hope, the section of the Trail known as the Kettle Valley Rail Trail (KVR) begins. Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park offers family-friendly explorations through the Othello Tunnels and across bridges, with photo ops galore. (Access to this park has been affected by extreme weather. Please check with the park and local trail groups in advance to determine what is open and accessible.)
