10:00 START TIME - Bring your flashlight!
Starting at the top of Issaqueena Falls, we will hike the Rail Trail to the Middle Tunnel. Although once covered with dirt, the Middle Tunnel now has an opening, so you can go inside. We will continue to the third tunnel: Saddleback Tunnel. You can't enter this tunnel, because over the years it has filled with water. Then we will return the way by the same route to view Issaqueena falls. Then we will enter Stumphouse Tunnel and hike to the inter gate. The old train tunnel is 25 feet high, 17 feet wide, and although it was not completed, it extends 1,617 feet into the mountain. You will need a flash light to venture to locked gate inside the tunnel.
