“Rock Veiw”
Review of Tunnel Drive

It is called a drive but it is a walking path. There is a steep incline for about 100 yards but if handicapped there is a path up the incline and parking on top. It is a well maintained pathway with great a view of the rock formations and canyon, oh yes, and tunnels to walk through. I have only walked 2 miles of it, but did see big horned sheep and deer. Great place to take a break from traveling and stretch your legs.

This is a nice place to take an easy hike. The tunnels were blasted out of the mountain in the early 1900's (not sure on that) so people had a nice place to take a scenic drive to see the river... Vehicles are no longer allowed up the path but its a pretty walk with beautiful views, in the summer you often see people on the river, your kids can wave - its all around just fun :)

Well, it is a free attractions. We did get some wonderful pictures when I was 14. Still, it looks smaller from an adult point now. However, you can picnic next to the rushing river.

THis was fun. Tunnel drive wasnt what I expected but it was really neat. the view is great as well as the tunnels. There are a few fun areas to climb around out there(wether you should or not) Be ready for a walk and bring any dogs if you have them. Also dont forget the camera.

Less than 4 miles round trip. Bring some water and sun screen. Tunnels were cool, couple of bridges, as well. Awesome view. Try counting the lizards, lots of iron pyrite.
