Conrail - Roseville Tunnel
Posted June 15, 2018, by Matt Targa (mwtrag [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This GPS marker is off. It's a bit deeper in the woods. I actually was able to find it but couldn't get down the cliff, so I parked at the very entrance of the park by the playground and snaked my way down there and followed the old traintrack trail. when I got out the other end that must be where the GPS coordinates was telling me to go to. Then I followed a wide path much wider than a walking trail and it took me out to the road and someones house where that side said no trespassing. I told the owner i was sorry i came in the park side and he was cool. So that guys entrance which is much easier to get to the tunnel seems like private property but also the way the ATVs get to it and it's a house with a gate right after that overpass car bridge.
