There is also a route which runs between British Columbia and Alberta known as the Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3 in both provinces); while not officially part of the Trans-Canada Highway, it connects with the main branch of the highway in both Hope (Hope, British Columbia) and Medicine Hat (the western and eastern termini of the Crowsnest Highway, respectively). The southern mainline of the Canadian Pacific Railway penetrated the range via the passes of the Coquihalla River, along one of the steepest and snowiest routes in the entire Pacific Cordillera. Near Hope, B.C. (Hope, British Columbia), the railway roadbed (Kettle Valley Railway) and the Othello Tunnels (Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park), now decommissioned, are popular tourist recreation destinations for hiking and bicycling. The pass is used by the Coquihalla Highway (British Columbia Highway 5), a government megaproject built as part of the Expo 86 spending boom of the 1980s, which is now the main route from the Coast to the British Columbia interior. Traffic formerly went via the Fraser Canyon, to the west, or via Allison Pass and Manning Park along Highway 3 (Crowsnest Highway) to the south, near the border. Because of the abundance of powerful streams, many of the major westward rivers off the Cascades have been dammed to provide hydroelectric power. One of these, Ross Dam on the Skagit River, created a reservoir which spans the border southeast of Hope, British Columbia, extending into Canada two miles (3 km). At the foot of the southeast flank of Mount Baker, at Concrete, Washington, the Baker River (Baker River (Washington)) is dammed to form Lake Shannon and Baker Lake. thumb 150px left Source of Fraser River at Fraser Pass (Image:Fraser_Pass.jpg) From
