  • Impressive architectural work and how the tunnel was built. Great bike ride! We saw deers on our pathway...beautiful site. I would recommend wearing hiking boots slushee and wet inside the tunnel.

There is a great hike over the tunnel as well - you can hike over the tunnel, and then back though. The tunnel path is just wide enough to walk your bikes through.
  • Had a great time camping/kayaking there
  • Cool tunnel and camping area.
