16 years ago this was an adventure. Today it's like playing in traffic. So many bike riders that you are standing to the side as they charge past like they are in a race. When they are coming towards you their high intensity beams begin blinding you from about 200 yards away. Easy enough for the whole family but spoiled by riders.

Bring flashlights, water and a comfy jacket. Went with my 8 year old and 2 year old in stroller. It's about an hour and a half each way. Overall it was fun and relaxing.

Just started back to hiking and breaking in new shoes. Nothing better than a casual walk in the spooky dark Snoqualmie tunnel. Will be back again.

Had a lot of fun doing this trail! great walk with the dogs, but be aware the tunnel gets pretty chilly, even in the heart of the summer.

Nice ride thru the tunnel. I was expecting graffiti an trash. Rode thru the tunnel and continued on the road to the Summit Pancake house for breakfast.

Finally took the time to walk the tunnel. It was fun with a group. Good rainy day option.

Visited here as part of a geocaching event in August 2015. Pretty long tunnel. Lots of people and bikes on a beautiful August day. Glad I got to experience this and the surrounding beauty.
