Why Travel between Hope and Kamloops

This stretch of the Trans-Canada squeezes against the walls of the Fraser River canyon between Hope and Cache Creek, passing through several towns, a few tunnels, and several great views, along the route developed in the1860s to get miners to the Cariboo gold fields. Between Cache Creek and Kamloops, the highway follows the Thompson River which flows through a high desert plateau, where farms exist only where they are irrigated, and you can see the irrigation circles along both sides of the highway.

Here is the itinerary for the 291 km along the #1 between Hope and Kamloops via the #1:

Wide bend in Fraser River, at Hope

Hope to Lytton via #1 along the Fraser River Canyon

The town of Hope grew quickly in 1858 when gold was discovered in several areas further up the Fraser River. The town is surrounded by stunning scenery, where mountains tower a kilometer or more over the river valley, and was showcased in Silvester Stallone’s “First Blood” action movie, filmed nearby.

Tunnels along the Fraser Valley

Visitors need to remember that BC was explored, exploited and settled so quickly in the late 1800s that the Crown (representing first England, and then the Dominion of Canada) could not settle land claims with the First Nations fast enough. Along the Fraser and Thomson River valleys, this segment of the Trans-Canada Highway passes through numerous Indian Reservations, and there are still many unsettled land claims.

The original residents settled in numbers along the Fraser River because the salmon provided a reliable source of food, and were easy to harvest from the many shallow sandbanks along the river’s length.

Railways do not function well when slopes exceed 4%. Two national railways (the CPR in the 1870s and the CNR in the 1900s) had built their routes along the easy grades on both banks. The highway, completed in 1962 had to be built along whatever land is left over and therefore winds, changes levels, even changes sides of the river (compare your route with the railway on the opposite bank!)

There are eight tunnels along this stretch of the highway. The steel arched Alexandra Bridge replaced a suspension bridge dating to 1926, which in turn replaced an 1863 wooden bridge flooded out in 1892 (which left the road impassible for the years in between).

History of the Trans-Canada Highway

Highway Notes

Lytton-ViewWestFromTCHToTHompsonRiver3

This highway is very scenic, though viewpoints and rest stops are either infrequent or poorly marked, and typically only on the lane alongside the river (that is, when the highway is to the right of your direction of travel). Because of the level of traffic in summer (and the very tight roadway), crossing traffic to catch views of the river is difficult, if not dangerous.

The highway travels about half the length of the Fraser and half the length of the Thompson on one bank and then switches to the other, so travellers will have an even opportunity to get views of these two spectacular rivers. Because of protective concrete barriers, often passengers in cars will get views of the river in the chasm below, though the driver will get much less frequent glimpses. Those driving vans, pickup trucks, or RVs (with higher seating) will get much better views of the river below.

One popular attraction, Hell’s Gate (where the wide Fraser basically turns on its side to squeeze through a 35 metre wide gap in the rocks) has convenient parking on both sides of the highway, with a pedestrian overpass for eastbound/northbound travellers.

The high desert plains of the Upper Fraser and the Thomspon Rivers

Lytton to Kamloops via #1 along Thompson River Plateau

High Plateau along the Thompson River
Lytton lies on a high desert plateau at the junction of the Thompson and Fraser rivers. It has recorded the highest summer temperature in Canada (44C /111F). Simon Fraser passed this point in 1808 on his way to the Pacific. During the Cariboo Gold Rush in the 1850s & 60s, Lytton was a boom town. It boomed again during the era of railway construction, but today, the Trans-Canada passes close by the town.

The Thompson River has gravel hundreds of metres deep left behind by the last Ice Age’s glaciers. You will notice layered gravel cliffs alongside the river along this stretch of the Trans-Canada.

Luxury Golf Course on the highway, just west of Kamloops, overlooking the Thompson River

The towns of Ashcroft & Cache Creek became home to large horse ranches and cattle ranches to supply transportation and food to early gold prospectors, and this ranching tradition makes the Ashcroft Stampede a top festival in BC’s interior.

Kamloops started as a Hudson’s Bay trading post at the strategic junction of the North Thompson and South Thompson rivers. Today, BC’s 4th largest city is an important ranching community.
