This trail was really well kept and the weather was nice. I couldn’t stand being down around the cave when the train came through. But it’s amazing there almost surreal.

This was the trail that rekindled my love for the outdoors. It's a short, but very rewarding trail. Lots of good views of the river and tunnel and if you're lucky, you'll see a train pass through. It's 0.7 one way so it's 1.5ish out and back. Absolutely beautiful!
