  • The tunnel was over 2 miles long. It got very dark inside, Make sure you have a flash light.It is a little uneven terrain inside. So be careful. Watch your footing.  more »
  • There is a dangerous wood bridge outside the tunnel that is raised off the trail - important to dismount bike and walk over this bridge.  more »

  • we were biking through the C&O canal, so this was on the way! It was really cool to talk to some rangers about the history of the paw paw tunnel; try to see if you can get a ranger to tell you about it! The tunnel was very cool... Definitely bring a flashlight! Only issue was that the path was narrow and bumpy. I scraped the walls a couple times especially when pedestrians were passing by me. Super cool though, just be prepared!
  • I really loved this tunnel. It was the coolest thing I have seen. I love the walk through it. It was long and dark. You def need a flashlight. The brick was just amazing. Im so glad they kept this. It looked like it wasnt that long but it was. I truly enjoyed it. It reminded me of the movie IT! We seen a snake, frog, turtle and fish!
