Description

An awesome historic tunnel turned into a trail. Unlike anything else in the area. Approach the 4200+ foot tunnel from either side. Make sure to bring a headlamp or flashlight and plan for entirely different temperatures inside the tunnel than outside.

Short Walk: Park at either end of the Blue Ridge Tunnel Trail.

Family Friendly: An awesome historic tunnel turned into a trail, a short under 1-mile walk to the tunnel entrance.
