Walk on an abandoned rail line through this 1000 foot tunnel that some say is the longest train tunnel in the area. There is potential for falling rock and ice inside as the tunnel is no longer maintained. I have heard that it may be slated for destruction. It’s a good idea to bring a flashlight to help watch your footing. On my first trip to this tunnel, I mistakenly drove down to Jumbo’s Cove Resort where the owner has the best sign posted on one of the buildings: “Talk Loud, Walk Slow, Keep your hands where I can see them.

  1. We have been 3 times, taking others with us. We find it mind boggling to think of just how it was created out of the rock and how the workers were able to put cement up so high.

    For safety sake it is advisable to take a flashlight.
    It is too bad there is so much graffiti and garbage.

  2. We went there today (November 20/20). The directions are spot on. It’s a creepy but interesting place. There’s a LOT of graffiti, especially at the north entrance. I recommend checking it out but, personally, I find Flett Tunnel to actually be much prettier and more historic.
