When you reach the sign that says Sterling Mine Trail System: Tunnel Ridge Trail 2km/1mi; Little Applegate Trailhead 8km/5mi; Bear Gulch Trailhead 5km/3mi, you are actually standing just about over the tunnel. If you take either trail a little further, you will reach the tunnel. The passage is clear but you will have to duck if you want to walk through it.

The trail is an easy trail however it is all up hill. It does level off in a couple of spots. when you get to the top, there is signage showing the directions of the other trails, just turn left and head down a ways and the tunnel is on your right. you do have to crouch down to go through it though. Enjoy the hike and scenery, after all that is what you are out there for.

Wonderful hike it is steep starting out. The trail is nice and we'll cared for. Along the ditch beyond the tunnel is a flatter trail and easier hiking. went about a mile past the tunnel. The return trip is fast.

Was an easy fun hike. The trails can be confusing on which way to go at first, but you can figure it out. There's a ton of beautiful scenery. A lot of it is uphill so be prepared for that. On the way back at around 5 something we heard a loud noise like a log coming down the hill and saw movement and we think there was a bear behind us. Other then that it was fun and so worth it.

This trail is more then 8mi round trip. The trail head entrance this location takes you to starts 1 mile away from tunnel ridge trail. from there it's another 3 mile hike to the tunnel. Glad I went early enough to have time to go the extra 6 miles. Still a nice hike with a great bench view of the nearby valley. The tunnel is creepy but a lot of fun to go through. If you have the time to drive out there then check it out.

Super fun trail for the kids! When we got to the top of the ridge we couldn't find the tunnel at first then realized we were standing right on it.

It's more like 4.6 miles to the 'tunnel' a lot further than you think! Prepare for about 9 miles around trip.

Lots of gorgeous madrones along this trail. They may outshine the destination.

This is not an easy trail. Uphill all the way. Scenery is nice but not spectacular.
