The Tunnel Drive hike is an easy walk and was a great way to get a bit of exercise between our morning Royal Gorge train ride and evening helicopter ride. The trail is nicely maintained with benches, trash cans, and picnic tables.

This is a 2 miles walk with very nice view of the Arkansas river. Unfortunatly there is not much information about it, why it was built. There are some impressive tunnels you walk through.

Nice walk and great views. The tunnels and cliffs of that area along with the view of the Arkansaw are wonderful. Four miles total.

This is a nice scenic hike. The trail goes through several tunnels, along the train track and above the river. You will experience rafters and if lucky some wild life. Not a difficult hike by any means but do take some water along!

Tunnel drive is an easy hike that affords a great view of the Arkansas River and surrounding mountains. The first section is steep, but the rest is fairly flat.

After driving down from Colorado Springs and then riding the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, it was a welcome experience to walk this really easy trail through the old tunnels. Wish I could have timed our walk with a passing train. We'll just have to come back again when we are in the area.
