  • 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.
