This trail is easy to hike. It goes along the gorge a few hundred feet above the Arkansas river and train tracks. It is almost level for all 2 miles (4 miles round trip). If you expect to see the bridge over the gorge - drive to the bridge. This trail doesn't go that far.

We enjoyed strolling this stretch of Tunnel Drive, waving to the many rafters and the excursion train passing below. Scenic rocky landscape with the river below, several benches for sitting and taking in the view. Seems to be a popular running route for locals.

My kids didn't walk on the trail very far. We were excited to go through several tunnels in the first 1/2 mile. It was very scenic, lots of lizards, good exercise, and FREE. We enjoyed it, but only went 1 mile out and back.

Nice walk, little uphill at the beginning. Can be very warm, with little shade. Bring water. Nice view of the Royal Gorge train and river rafters.

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.

Well worth the walk, not really a hike but fun to check out. Theres actually a picnic table up the walk a ways for those that might like to picnic.

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