Sandy Creek Trail - Sandy Creek Tunnel
This is actually two tunnels. The original was built in the early 1900s. When the tunnel & RR right-of-way was purchased for converstion into a rail-trail, the tunnel was determined to be unsafe. To fix this, a smaller tunnel was created inside the original tube, with the space between filled with concrete and recycled rubber tires.
