The Hope Museum is currently closed for renovations. For more information on the history of Hope, visit the friendly staff at the Hope Visitor Centre at 919 Water Avenue.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOPE The town of Hope sits on traditional Stó:lō territory. Prior to European settlement, the thriving Stó:lō village of Ts’qo:ls existed on the current town site. Stó:lō are part of the Halq’eméylem language group and speak an Upriver dialect. In turn, Halq’eméylem is part of the Coast Salish family of languages. “Stó:lō” is the Halq’eméylem word for “river,” thus Stó:lō are “the river people.” The river with which the Stó:lō share their name was renamed the Fraser River after Simon Fraser’s successful journey in 1808. The northern section of the Fraser Canyon (around Hell’s Gate and Boston Bar) is traditional Nlaka’pamux territory. Nlaka’pamux are part of the Nłeōkepmxcin language group. When the Hudson’s Bay Company needed to find a route inland that bypassed the Fraser

Canyon, Stó:lō, Nlaka’pamux, and Similkameen guides helped to establish what is now the 74 km HBC (1849) Heritage Trail over the Cascade Mountains. As this area represented the “best hope” for finding such a route, the Hudson’s Bay Company established Fort Hope at the proposed trailhead in 1848. In the years following the fur trade and the 1858 Fraser River Gold Rush, mining continued to support Hope and its residents. At the close of the 19th century, logging was rising to prominence and would continue to be our primary industry for the better part of the 20th century. As has always been the way of the people who live at natural junctions, we continue to welcome visitors to our community and share in the abundance we get to call our own.

popped or glottalized consonants (eg. the sound beginning “earns” in “Mary earns”)

:

means that the sound before the colon is prolonged or dragged out twice as long as a sound without a following colon.

Stress Marks (´ or ` ) Stress means the vowel is pronounced fairly loud and with a higher melody than if the vowel was unstressed. High stress is shown by ´ over a vowel (eg. ó or é).


In the backroom of a local coffee shop, a vested group of local tourism operators talked about their vision. A vision of cohesive community, magnificent experiences, local representation and connectedness.  Their heart’s desire for the area was at the centre of everything they did. This grassroots group paved the way for the region, which we now know as Hope, Cascades and Canyons. From Bridal Falls to Manning Park and from Hope to Boston Bar, this vast region represents that original group and their neighbors, allowing them to showcase these awe-inspiring communities to the world.

The Japanese Friendship Garden (adjacent to Memorial Park) was built in 1991 and is dedicated to the 2600 Japanese-Canadians who were interned at Tashme (23 kilometres east of Hope at Sunshine Valley) during the Second World War.

Coquihalla River Community Park (located at 805 Kawkawa Lake Road) includes the Hope Bike Park - which boasts pump tracks, dirt jumps, and other features for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders - and a disc golf course. Picnic tables and seating areas allow parents and non-riders to watch the action.

Directly across from the park (though inaccessible to visitors) is Welqamex Island. Archaeological discoveries on the island include a large Stó:lō village with many pit houses. The island is also home to a blue heron nesting site.

CHAINSAW CARVING COMPETITION Welcome to Hope, the chainsaw carving capital of Southern B.C., and home to one of the globe’s most engaging sculpting competition: the World. Every other summer, carving artists from around the world converge in Hope’s Memorial Park for four days to show off their skills with a chainsaw. Amid the buzzing of metal teeth and flying sawdust, imagination comes to life as logs metamorphosize into things like bears, beavers, and bass.

To make sure you don’t miss the fun and excitement in this year’s competition, mark off August 15 to 18 in your calendar.

Since the carving of a Douglas fir trunk in 1991, Hope’s worked tirelessly at solidifying itself as the world leader in chainsaw carvings, and now the town itself boasts more that 50 sculptures that are on display throughout the community. And like any community event should, the World-Class Chainsaw Carving Competition draw together people from all walks of life: not only can spectators watch the artists at work, there’s typically family-friendly events to take in such as the Hope Mountain Market, birdhouse painting, and live music. In past years, renowned chainsaw artists – like Ryan Cook, Pete Ryan, Mark Colp, and Chris Foltz – Challenged themselves and delighted audiences as they raced to carve the best sculpture in just two hours’ time. This, says Colp, is his favourite type of artwork, preferring competitions to commissions because they posses an inherent artistic freedom not present in paidfor work.

CHRIST CHURCH NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE Christ Church National Historic Site has housed a congregation since its consecration in 1861. This makes it the longest operating church on mainland British Columbia. The Anglican parish was established in Hope in 1859 by the Rev. Alexander Pringle. When construction of the church began in 1861, it was designed by the Royal Engineers to create a stronger British presence in Fort Hope. The Fraser River Gold Rush had brought an influx of American gold seekers to the community and British colonists were eager to establish supremacy. With its dark wood interior and leaded glass windows, Christ Church is an excellent example of an Anglican parish church in the Gothic Revival style. Interpretive signage on the exterior allows visitors to explore the building’s history during the off-season. Guided tours are available during the summer months. The grounds offer a classical labyrinth, old-growth trees and a peaceful garden.

For more info, visit 681 Fraser Avenue.

BRIGADE DAYS In 1968, a local service station owner named Ken James decided that Hope deserved to celebrate the end of another successful summer season. Named in honour of our fur trading history, Hope Brigade Days and its mascot, Briggie Pete, have signalled the end of summer for the community ever since. As Hope has changed over the last 50 years, so too have the list of events at Brigade Days. Last year saw the return of Logger Sports to the weekend and they are returning for this year as well. The Caesar Soares 2 Pitch Softball Tournament, outdoor concerts and the Hope Hustle are some of the biggest draws. However, some of the most classic events (like the parade and the motorsports) just keep growing! Although it’s the symbolic end of summer, visitors flock to town for a weekend packed with activities. In 2018 Brigade Days celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary in grand style and this year’s event is shaping up to be just as good if not better, but don’t take our word for it: come check out the fun for yourself.

Events include: • Motorsports • Stock car races • Parade • Outdoor concerts • Ken James Ripoff Saloon (beer garden) • Boondock Bike Jam • Caesar Soares 2 Pitch Softball Tournament • The Hope Hustle • Midway • Food trucks Brigade Days takes place the weekend after Labour Day, Sept. 6 – 8, 2019 Wristbands provide access to the weekend’s events and are available at participating retailers.

HBC (1849) HERITAGE TRAIL

Check out hopemountain.org for maps and more information.

“Learn some history through the soles of your feet” -Harley Hatfield. In 2016, the 74km HBC (1849) Heritage trail joined the ranks of the West Coast Trail, Juan de Fuca, and Stein Valley as epic, multi-day, bucket-list hikes in British Columbia. The trail was the Hudson’s Bay Company’s first overland route connecting B.C.’s coast and interior. Prior to HBC use, First Nations had been traversing the Tulameen Plateau for centuries. The HBC Trail crosses rugged wilderness and hikers should have previous experience with mountain travel. Some trail-specific information to keep in mind: • Very few bridges exist on the trail, so be prepared to wade across streams and rivers • July to September is the best time to hike the trail • Water purification system (tablets and/or pump) is recommended The HBC Trail can be hiked over several days or in a series of day trips. Access points: Peers Creek, Sowaqua Creek, and Jacobson Lake. Camps have bear caches, pit toilets, and water sources.

HIKER’S PARADISE

Hope Lookout

photo by Kelly Orchard

BEGINNER Flood Falls Round Trip Distance: 1.5km Time: 30 minutes Just off the freeway, this short hike to a waterfall is perfect for families. It’s fun to do on rainy days too, when the extra water makes the waterfall even more spectacular. On the coldest winter days you might even see the frozen falls.

INTERMEDIATE Hope Lookout Round Trip Distance: 4km Time: 3 hours Mount Hope Lookout (or ‘The Hope Hustle’) is Hope’s answer to the Grouse

Grind in North Vancouver. The trail offers spectacular views of Hope from two viewpoints and ends at the highest viewpoint, which includes benches and interpretive signs.

ADVANCED Tikwalus Trail Round Trip Distance: 8.2km Time: 5 hours Hikers will enjoy this beautiful mountain lake, which offers good fishing and pretty lakeshore sites for overnight camping. The trail passes through old-growth forest and features beautiful waterfalls along the way. For information on all hiking the Hope, Cascades & Canyons pick up a free copy of Trails of Hope.

Bear Aware The Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee is a local volunteer organization that works to keep our bears wild. Remember that a fed bear is a dead bear, so keep your campsites free of garbage and pack out whatever you packed in. To avoid bear encounters: • • •

Hike in groups Make noise on the trail Keep dogs on leash

If you encounter a bear • • • •

Stay calm and do not run Back away slowly Talk to the bear in a calm voice Avoid eye contact

CYCLING The Hope, Cascades & Canyons region has a nice mix of trails for families, beginners, and those looking for more challenging terrain. Note that all routes are multi-user.

DOWNHILL AND CROSS-COUNTRY TRAILS Mt. Hope Lookout Distance: 3km (roundtrip) Advanced The mountain bike trails on Mt. Hope start just below the hikers’ trail-head and, at points, crosses the hiking trail. The advanced trail has some man-made features and follows the Joan Greenwood Loop. Poland Lake Distance: 16km (roundtrip) Advanced Start at Strawberry Flats and climb past the ski hill to a beautiful alpine lake (with camping for those looking for an overnight adventure). This trail is not technical and offers riders incredible views of the Hozameens.

LIGHT TRAILS Kettle Valley Railway: Hope-Othello Distance: 10km (roundtrip) Beginner This portion of the Kettle Valley Railway offers beginner trail riders an easy introduction to the KVR. This abandoned railway bed is now used for biking and hiking. Rotary Nature Trails Distance: 2km (roundtrip) Beginner With a few more twists and turns than the Kettle Valley Railway, the Rotary Nature Trails is a fun place to ride with kids and anyone who is new to trail riding. The trail follows the Coquihalla River and also connects to the Town Bike Route.

ROAD RIDING Given its location at the edge of the mountains, Hope is ideally situated for road rides of any length. Town Bike Route Distance: 7km Beginner

Brand new to riding? Introducing your kids to the sport? Feel like checking out town? Then the Town Bike Route is for you. This marked route around town leads riders of any skill level past Memorial Park, Christ Church, the confluence of the Fraser and Coquihalla Rivers, and the Recreation Centre. The Airport Distance: 20km (roundtrip) Intermediate The ride around the airport is a classic road ride in Hope. Cyclists can either leave from downtown for a longer ride that includes Richmond Hill (Flood-Hope Road) or can drive to the airport a cruise the beginner three-kilometre loop with no hills or traffic. The Hope Slide Distance: 35km (roundtrip) Advanced The climb starts as soon as you leave town with a section of 6% along the Coquihalla Connector. The shoulder on this route is fairly luxurious and riders barely have to pedal to make it home.

JONES LAKE It might sound like a cliché, but Jones Lake is truly a hidden gem in Hope, Cascades & Canyons. This BC Hydro reservoir is bordered by towering mountains and has two recreation areas on the north shore. Both recreation areas have pit toilets, picnic tables and accessible campsites. Though a glorious spot, Jones Lake remains

photo by AdvantageHOPE

a hidden gem because of the road conditions. As an active logging road, the conditions can be rough (even during the summer months). Even on its best days, the road is designed for 4x4 vehicles with high clearance. Small cars, RVs and trailers are not encouraged to attempt the trip. For those with the appropriate vehicle, the trip is well worth it. Not only is the camp-

ing free, but visitors can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing and hiking. Note: users must bring their own drinking water.

AERIAL VIEW Whether from land or sky, the views around Hope are unbeatable. Hope offers some of the best conditions for gliding in the province. When westerly winds from the Fraser Valley hit the local mountains they create strong upward columns of air that can keep gliders in flight for hours. From April to October, visitors can catch a

glimpse of the gliders soaring by the mountains over town. The Vancouver Soaring Association – based out of the Fraser Valley Regional District’s Airpark in Hope – offers introductory flights and training courses. Check them out at vancouversoaring.com. For visitors who prefer an engine, Valley Helicopters offers incredible tours. Tours include:

• Fly-by mountain tour for a chance to see mountain goats on Mount Ogilvie • Fishing in a pristine backcountry lake • Drop-off tour to the summit of Mount Hope for an hour of solitude • Wedding photos in the most incredible settings For more information visit valleyhelicopters.ca

HOLLYWOOD NORTH In 1981, Sylvester Stallone and his film crew took over Hope to film Rambo: First Blood and introduced Hollywood to British Columbia. Every year, thousands of people visit Hope to see their favourite filming locations. Since then, more than 15 feature films (including Shoot to Kill, Hope Springs, The Stickup, Far from Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog, and War for the Planet of the Apes) have been filmed in the area. The Hallmark channel movie A Winter’s Dream, which was filmed almost in it’s entirety in Hope & Manning Park, debuted on TV in January of this year. A Dog’s Way Home, which stars Ashley Judd and hit the big screen in early 2019, was also partially filmed in Hope. Our diverse history has also made Hope a popular location for documentary filming. In 2009, local filmmaker Eva Wunderman chronicled the 1858 conflict between First Nations and European gold seekers in Canyon War. Our rugged terrain is perhaps best highlighted in the Discovery Channel show Highway Thru Hell. The series follows Hope’s own Jamie Davis’ towing company crew and other lower mainland operators as they work to keep local highways open for truckers and the travelling public during unpredictable winter weather. Road safety message is a big part of the popular show, which is now in its seventh season.

FIRST BLOOD FILMING LOCATIONS Released in 1982, First Blood has become a cult classic. Thousands of people visit Hope each year to tour the filming locations. The map on the next page highlights some of the most iconic filming locations. Below is a description of the scenes. 1 Sheriff Teasle picks up Rambo on Water Avenue, near Gardner GM. 2 Trying to escape police, Rambo – on a stolen motorcycle – jumps the train tracks at Third Avenue. 3 With the police in hot pursuit, Rambo rides along Hudson Bay Street, passing the H-tree at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Hudson Bay Street.

4 The sheriff ’s station is located in front of District Hall, at the corner of Wallace Street and Third Avenue. It has since been moved (see #8). 5 The current location of Treehouse Health Foods was transformed into Mountain State Savings. Across Third Avenue from the bank, a Coke billboard was placed on the building’s roof to provide cover for the cameras. 6 Rambo rides his stolen motorcycle along the sidewalk on the north side of Wallace Street (between Third and Fraser avenues). 7 The Outpost gun shop was built at the intersection of Commission Street and Third Avenue. It was built specifically to be destroyed during filming. 8 The new location of the sheriff ’s station. Pieces of the Sheriff Station serve as the Canyon Golden Age Society’s club-

house at 560 Douglas Street. 9 The intersection near Exit 170 (Highway 1) is where Rambo walked under Hope’s original ‘Welcome to Hope: Gateway to Holidayland” archway. Remnants of the archway can be seen at Hope Station House. 10 Location of the gas station that Rambo blew up as a diversion. The station was built specifically to be destroyed. 11 The sheriff drops Rambo on the bridge to Portland at the beginning of the movie. The original bridge was taken down in 2011. 12 Othello Tunnels – known in the movie as ‘Chapman’s Gorge’ – is where Rambo hangs precariously on the rock wall (between tunnels one and two) and the police officer falls out of the helicopter. *Note: the Othello Tunnels are open from the May Long Weekend until the end of October.* 13 When evading capture on the stolen motorcycle, Rambo passes through the Chevron parking lot. The distinctive roofline of what is now Hope Pizza Place can be seen in the background of the scene. 14 In the movie, Station House was still at the corner of Hudson Bay Street and Fifth Avenue (see #3). The building was moved in 1985.

Sunshine Valley Tashme Museum Open Saturdays 10am – 4pm and by appointment Monday-Friday 14781 Alpine Boulevard, Sunshine Valley 604-869-7070

photo by AdvantageHOPE

Sunshine Valley is a pleasant mountain community with hundreds of kilometres of snowshoe, ATV, snowmobile, hiking, and biking trails that wind their way through the forests of the Sumallo and Nicolum River valleys. Its shallow lake offers paddling in the summer and skating in the winter. From its roots as a traditional First Nations hunting and berry picking area, Sunshine Valley has had a history worth exploring. In 1942, the Canadian government created a coastal exclusion zone and Japanese-Canadians living within that zone were interned in camps across the country.

Between 1942 and 1946, approximately 2600 people were interned at Sunshine Valley, then called Tashme. The name Tashme is derived from the last names of the men responsible for the camp: Taylor, Shirras, and Mead. After the war, a significant number of internees stayed in the area and have built a vibrant Japanese-Canadian community in Hope. Sunshine Valley is also home to one of the largest recorded landslides in Canadian history: the Hope Slide. On January 9, 1965, Highway 3 was abruptly closed when weak layers of rock covered with heavy

604-794-7455 53790 Popkum Road S. Rosedale

www.bridalfallswaterpark.com

snow on the face of Johnson Peak gave way. The force of the slide was such that the debris travelled 60 metres up Mt. Coulter (on the opposite side of the valley), obliterated Beaver (Outram Lake) from the topography of the valley, and triggered seismographic readings at a monitoring station in Penticton. The slide area was 85 metres deep and 3 kilometres wide. Four people were killed in the slide. Visitors travelling along Highway 3 are driving 55 metres above the original highway surface. At the Hope Slide viewpoint, visitors can see the scars that were left on Johnson Peak by the slide

SUMMER

HIKING

During the summer months, Manning Park is home to some of the best hiking, camping, and swimming in the area.

There are hundreds of kilometres of trails in Manning Park that vary from 20 minutes to 4 days to complete. Some of the most popular are:

Manning Provincial Park – home of Manning Park Resort – is a 4-season playground. The western edge of the park is 20 minutes from downtown, while the resort is a 45 minute drive from Hope (along Highway 3).

LIGHTNING LAKES CHAIN

Manning Park Resort’s year-round hotel (with cabins and chalets) complements the four summer-only campgrounds and makes Manning Park truly a place for everyone. The 140-seat Alpine Room is perfect for weddings, reunions, and conferences.

This chain (Lightning, Strike, Flash, and Thunder Lakes) is one of the most popular spots in Manning Park. At the Lightning Lake Day-Use Area, visitors can rent canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards. Fishing on the shores of Lightning Lake is a popular family afternoon activity.

DARK SKY The Dark Sky in Manning Park offers some of the best stargazing around. With multiple viewing locations and very limited light pollution, the views are incredible. Some recommended viewing locations are the Lightning Lake Day Use (year-round), Cascade Lookout (in the summer), or even in Windy Joe’s Field near the Resort. Look for Dark Sky events scheduled throughout the year, such as Guided Snowshoe Tours

and Moonlight Nordic Ski Downs. The 2nd annual Astronomy Weekend will take place over two weekends in 2019: October 18-20th & 25-27th.

WINTER During the winter months, Manning Park Resort boasts alpine and nordic resort skiing and snowboarding, snowshoe trails, lift-serviced tubing, an outdoor skating rink, and winter camping. The rental shop and ski-school are ready to get anyone out on the hill. The brand new quadruple chairlift will be ready to take skiers and snowboarders up the mountain in winter 2019.

COQUIHALLA SUMMIT RECREATION AREA Coquihalla Summit Recreation Area is one of Hope’s best kept secrets. It is a haven for ski-touring, sledding and snowshoeing in the winter and hiking, fishing and wildlife viewing in the summer. It was established in 1987 to protect the Coast-Cascade dry-belt landscape. From an easy hike to Falls Lake to an advanced rock-climb up Yak Peak, Coquihalla Summit has something for all outdoor enthusiasts. History buffs and cycling enthusiasts can ride the old Kettle Valley Railway from the summit to Portia exit. Hikers and climbers will find almost no end to granite peaks and backcountry tarns to explore. One of the most popular year-round hikes in the area is Needle Peak. The trailhead is on the south side of the highway at Exit 217 (Zopkios). The trail passes over glacier-polished granite and offers glorious views of the North Cascades and Coast Mountains. There is walk-in wilderness camping available at Falls Lake. This is rustic camping with no facilities provided. Camping is possible year-round, but please be aware of the extreme winter conditions which can occur in this area.

FISHING Hope, Cascades & Canyons is world renowned for its salmon and sturgeon fishing. But there are more species in our rivers and lakes than those iconic fish. There is no question when the salmon run opens in Hope: fishers from all over the Lower Mainland converge on the region when the sockeye, spring, and pink are running. Public access points on the Fraser River include: • Wardle Street • Rupert Street

SPAWNING SALMON Salmon spend their early life in rivers and streams before migrating to the Pacific Ocean. Adult salmon later return to the same area where they hatched, guided largely by smell, to spawn and die. Seeing thousands of fish fight their way up-river is a truly incredible experience.

Top 3 Places to see Fish Spawning 1. Sucker’s Creek 2. Rotary Trails 3. Othello Tunnels

Though the exact dates vary considerably, the major salmon run typically starts in Hope in October. Late September: Chum Late October: Coho June, July, and August: Steelhead October: Kokanee Interpretive signs at Thacker Regional Park (Sucker’s Creek) explore the unique challenges facing salmon in our rivers and streams. The first bridge in Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park is the best place to see the summer steelhead run. The streams on the east side of Kawkawa Lake are the best place to see the Kokanee show off their fall colours.

SKAGIT VALLEY Skagit Valley Provincial Park was born when Seattle City Lights attempted to raise the Ross Dam and flood the Skagit Valley. A herculean international effort followed as loggers (led by Curly Chittenden), environmentalists, and outdoor enthusiasts opposed the project and lobbied government to preserve this pristine region of British Columbia. For more information on the history of the park, check out the Gateway to the Skagit (Silver Skagit Road). Silver Lake Provincial Park and Ross Lake are the most popular recreational areas in the Skagit Valley. Ross Lake is a reservoir and water levels fluctuate throughout the year, but it is typically at full pool by

July 1. At low-water, there is no water on the Canadian side. Visitors to Ross Lake should remember their passports, as Ross Lake straddles the Canada/USA border.

campgrounds (Silver Lake, Silver Tip, Whitworth Horse Camp, and Ross Lake) offer basic amenities (well-water only and no hook-ups). Whitworth Horse Camp also offers corrals and hitching rails.

In the spirit of the park’s inception, Friends of the Skagit was created in 2014 to educate visitors on the impact visitors can have on the park. They support a long-standing garbage removal initiative by handing out garbage bags to users on weekends.

In addition to camping, the park boasts amazing swimming, paddling, hiking, and wildlife viewing.

Garbage cans throughout the Skagit Valley are emptied by a single volunteer. Please help him by packing out what you pack in. Skagit Valley is one of the most popular camping destinations in the area. Four

Visitors looking for a multi-day hike or epic trail run should check out the Skyline II and Skagit River trails. Note: there are no gas stations, ATMs, or flush toilets in the Skagit Valley.

GOLD PANNING The 1858 gold rush forever changed the lives of the First Nations and Europeans who called the Fraser Canyon home. Today, visitors can live a part of history by gold panning on the banks of the Fraser using much of the same equipment that they used in the 1800s.

Public Panning Reserves Hope – from the confluence of the Fraser and Coquihalla rivers to the Fraser River bridge Yale – at the bottom of Albert Street Visitors can also experience the life of a gold panner at Yukon Dan’s annual Fraser River Gold Panning Championships (August 15-18, 2019). The competition – which attracts panners from around the world – takes place at Anderson Creek Campground in Boston Bar. For more info visit yukondan.com

WHITEWATER RAFTING AND PADDLING The story of British Columbia cannot be told without the story of its rivers. And the story of your trip should not be told without the story of a river. Hope, Cascades & Canyons has some of the best rafting and paddling in the province. For white-water kayakers with experience and their own gear, adventure awaits on the Coquihalla River, Skagit River, and Silver Creek. Depending on snow pack and river levels, commercial rafting in the area typically starts in early June on the Coquihalla and Nahatlatch rivers. Like the season in which they are run, these rivers are fast and fun. Rafting on the Coquihalla and the Nahatlatch typically ends July 1. A paddle or power trip down the Thompson River is the adventure you have been waiting for. Hot sun, pristine swimming holes, and roller-coaster-sized waves characterize a day-trip on the Thompson. fraserraft.com

@fraserriverraft

For those wanting a chance to paddle through history, power trips down the Mighty Fraser River run all summer. The Fraser is a Canadian Heritage River and one of the longest in Canada (1375km). The best time to run the Fraser is late July to early September. 1.800.363.7238

Year-round rafting and kayaking is offered on the Chilliwack River. Family-run rafting companies with experienced guides are here to help visitors of all skill and comfort levels find a suitable trip.

FRASER CANYON The Fraser Canyon is a scenic route rich in human history. First Nations traversed the canyon walls using ropes, ladders, and bridges. They built a trail network that connected their villages, enabling trade, hunting, and resource gathering. Aside from salmon, the most famous resource in the canyon is gold. In the mid 1800s, Nlaka’pamux First Nations were pulling gold and salmon out of the Fraser to trade with interior and coastal nations. Though the Hudson’s Bay Company and territorial leaders attempted to keep the existence of gold a secret in order to stop American miners from flooding the region, Americans “discovered” gold near Emory Creek in 1858 and prompted the Fraser River Gold Rush. Localized disputes regarding disruption of the salmon run and violence perpetrated by miners against First Nations nearly led to all-out war on the banks of the Fraser River in 1858. The traditional transportation routes through the canyon were not suitable 50

for the massive influx of people after 1858. First a mule trail (1858) and then the Cariboo Wagon Road (1863) allowed for the overland travel of miners and supplies. A section of the original mule trail is visible near the southern entrance to Hell’s Gate Tunnel. Sections of the Cariboo Wagon Road can be seen at a pullout south of the Yale Tunnel and at Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park. The original Alexandra Bridge was the main river crossing of the 600 kilometre road from Fort Yale to Barkerville. Travel between communities in the canyon changed immeasurably when the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1885. The Canadian National Railway (on the

Hope Visitor Guide 2019

opposite bank of the Fraser) was completed in 1915. The first automobile road came in 1926, but the modern highway wasn’t completed until the early 1960s. The highway today passes through 7 tunnels that were blasted through the sheer rock face by road engineers in the late 1950s. These tunnels range in length from 57 to 610 metres (11th longest tunnel in Canada). TRAVEL THE CANYONS


HISTORIC YALE Yale – established by the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1848 – was once the largest city north of San Francisco and west of Chicago. Yale grew to an estimated 30 000 people during the 1858 gold rush. With the construction of the Cariboo Wagon Road in the 1860s, Yale became the terminus for one of the largest sternwheeler routes in North America and bustled with the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s. Today, the booming gold rush town has given way to a beautiful village on the banks of the mighty Fraser River. Yale Historic Site is home to a number of original buildings and is well worth the stop. Creighton House houses the museum’s collection. On the grounds, visitors can explore the Living History Tent City and experience the early days of the Fraser River Gold Rush in the collection of canvas tents and wood buildings. A general store, saloon and blacksmith, complete with boardwalks, are just a few of the buildings open for touring. You can also try your

BOSTON BAR AND NORTH BEND In the heart of the Fraser Canyon (50 minutes north of Hope) lie the twin communities of Boston Bar and North Bend. The original settlement on the west side of the river was a Nlaka’pamux village called Koiaum. In what has become a familiar story in the canyon, the Fraser River Gold Rush changed the people and places forever. American miners chasing the mother lode settled in the area and renamed the village Boston Bar in the 1860s. When the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1885 Boston Bar moved to the east side of the river and the western town was renamed North Bend. From 1940-1986, an aerial ferry connected the two communities. When the ferry was replaced with the Cog Harrington Bridge, it was moved to Francis Harrington Park in downtown Boston Bar. Visitors can now explore the history of the aerial ferry and the two communities it served through a series of interpretive signs. The Heritage Room at the Old North Bend Primary School has a number of exhibits about the history of Boston Bar and North Bend. This facility is operated by volunteers.

HELL’S GATE A trip through the Fraser Canyon would not be complete without a stop at Hell’s Gate. In 1808, explorer Simon Fraser described this section of the river as a place “where no human being should ever venture, for surely we have encountered the gates of hell.” Aboriginal guides led Fraser and his crew over rope ladders strung from the cliffs above the turbulent river.

Known primarily for its breathtaking gondola ride, Hell’s Gate is a fun, interactive, and educational stop for the whole family. Each year, millions of salmon battle insurmountable odds on their upriver journey to spawn and die at their various spawning grounds. One of those overwhelming odds is Hell’s Gate. Blasting during the construction of the

Canadian National Railway in 1913 resulted in a landslide that wiped out millions of salmon and seemed to permanently block their upriver path. In 1937, Canada and the U.S worked together to create the International Fishways. The fishways are a series of ladders which allow salmon to navigate the rapids at Hell’s Gate. The Fraser River’s entire flow of water from its 135,185 square kilometre watershed

At Hell’s Gate, Highway 1 passes 244 metres above the Fraser River and it is here where your family’s adventure begins as you board the airtram. The lower terminal features an educational exhibit showcasing Simon Fraser, the Fraser River Gold Rush, and the life cycle of the salmon. There is also gold panning, observation decks, and a suspension bridge. Simon’s Cafe offers homemade salmon chowder, while the Fudge Factory serves up ice-cream in fudge-dipped waffle cones and more than 30 different flavours of fudge made on site. Gifts, souvenirs, and a great selection of BC history books can be found in the Gold Panner Gift Shop. In addition to all that you expect to experience at Hell’s Gate, there is a belief that the property is haunted. Information about these friendly spirits can be viewd throughout the site. Hell’s Gate Airtram is a 40 minute drive northeast of Hope. Parking is free and pets are permitted. The attraction is open daily April 16 – October 14, 2019.

SCENIC7 Hope’s closest neighbours to the west – Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz, and Harrison Mills – offer plenty of opportunities and adventure for visitors. The village of Harrison Hot Springs is built on the banks of beautiful Harrison Lake. Water-sports and festivals attract thousands of visitors every year and are definitely worth the visit. The natural springs – named Potash and Sulphur – which feed the resort’s private pool and the village’s public pool are inaccessible to visitors. A fenced-in source pool can be viewed at the end of a short walk along the lakefront. Agassiz and Harrison Mills are charming farm communities that boast a Circle Farm Tour, the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival (late November), and Kilby Historic Site. Kilby Historic Site is located at the confluence of the Fraser and Harrison rivers and offers visitors the opportunity to step back in time and discover rural BC at the turn of the 20th century.
