Happy Hollow Road Tunnel
You drive down a county road, go around a left turn and into the creek and then the 'cave'. Yeah right!!

Visited site recently. It appears that there was some flooding on the east side and the road was washed out badly. It looks a little different than it did the last time I was there, I think due to flooding.
Looks like they added a culvert pipe and raised the low water crossing sometime in the last 8 years. Maybe that is why they changed the road name.
It's an interesting virtual drive to the "real" crossing.
If you continue on this road to the north west it will cross a set of tracks that makes a steep and somewhat washed out portion north side. That is doable but it will bring you back to Tanner's Creek on a true Creek crossing. I turned around. A truck or some awd vehicles with ground clearance are advised.
It appears the road has had it's name changed to Creekside Drive. When I posted this it was shown on most maps as "Happy Hollow Road".
