“Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Absolutely incredible place. Not knowing it was there we weren't prepared with a flashlight. Next time we will bring one and go in all the way. The water dripping off the roof and the coolness was very refreshing.

“History and Darkness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

It has some good history, but the tunnel itself is dark and wet when it rains. it is an incomplete railroad tunnel for the Blue Ridge Railroad of South Carolina in Sumter National Forest. This is now a Walhalla park which also features nearby Isaqueena Falls. It is really a shame that someone today doesn't just build that tunnel straight though the mountains all the way to Knoxville... Although, I think the final destination was to be and Ohio railroad.

“Interesting History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a rather unique historic stop. The tunnel went unfinished due to the beginning of the Civil War.

“Best place to climb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Had a great time in the tunnel and climbing on top! What a best kept secret! We loved it! A great place to take a group and learn the history of the tunnel and Wahalla and surrounding areas.

“tunnel and falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

a great spot to take visitors. the incomplete tunnel has a pretty neat history. i would bring a flashlight if you're not so great with darkness and slightly enclosed spaces. issaqueena falls is close by too.
