The tunnel goes back about 1600 feet, so you will need a flashlight or the light on your cell phone. Quite a bit of water was dripping down in places as it had rained for two days but the tunnel appears fairly solid rock. An...More

I had never heard of this place till I went on vacation up to the mountains. The tunnel is very neat to look at. It’s damp and cool and definitely something worth taking 10 minutes to explore. My recommendation would be to bring a flashlight!!!...More

This unique spot was a railway that could not be finished back in WWI or WWII it is now a neat tunnel with native bats. Quite interesting spot with ISAQUEENA Falls next door. Enjoy! !!

We have been here a few times. We like coming early in the morning before the people with kids arrive... they like to yell in the tunnel.
