Short approximately 2.5 mile excursion to check it off Mark's bucket list. :) I did this once before back in 2007 with my nieces and nephews. Looks mostly the same, maybe a little more wearing away with time.
Going up the hillside from US 24 to the railroad bed.
We stopped to find a geocache inside one of the tunnels.
Some abandoned homeless camps - why would they leave all this stuff behind?
This reminds me of the movie Journey to the Center of the Earth.
A picture from library archives of the construction.
