Fascinating. Chilly. Dark. Worth the walk, even though I wonder when it might fall in!! Lots of water leaking into the tunnel, and this is the dry season. Still cool that the history is being... more »
Easy drive to the parking lot...easy to miss the sign for the turnoff...so be vigilant. Parking is very close and the walk up a small incline is moderate. A sign at the entrance has two... more »
A neat piece of history (civil war) and a 1600 ft tunnel built for their train. The Irish built it but came up 4000 ft short of completion. Lots of water in the tunnel so could only walked in 200... more »
This was interesting. There was not alot to see but still worth a look. The tunnel was pretty wet and scary. We did not walk to far into it. But the story behind it was interesting too. I will post pictures for pretty much the whole view.
The kids loved the tunnel (actually I did, too). It was nice and cool on a hot September day. We went on Labor Day, and there were lots of people in and out, but it was not too terribly crowded. The brand new enclosed restrooms are primitive, but a considerable improvement over the previous port-a-johns. There were great opportunities for family pictures, and hiking trails that were a challenge for an adult, but still navigable by small children. Our kids are 2, 4, 7, and 8, and all of us enjoyed the whole experience. Well maintained by the city of Walhalla.
It was amazing place to visit. The walk wasn't long at all the falls and tunnel were amazing to see.the falls are beautiful but if u want full view from bottom it's a very steep trail. The parking could be better it was packed but well worth the 3 hr Drive from Kingsport TN.
We loved the visit. The walk through the tunnel was cool and the hike to the bottom of the fall was awesome. Really enjoyed sitting and relaxing once we made it to the bottom. The hike to the bottom is short BUT steep. We made it down and up with a 4 yr old and 8mo old. (Held the 8mo old, the 4 yr old is a trooper and did it himself) You can enjoy the fall with a short walk to a lookout if you don't wish to go to the bottom.
Has it all, cool tunnel, walking and biking trails, amazing waterfall, picnic tables and pond. Great place to spend the day with the family.
