Visited on Saturday, August 26th with my daughter Caroline and her husband Cristian. The weather was beautiful. The views are magnificent. You can rent bicycles, helmets and lights (for the underground tunnels) from Lookout Pass and Recreation. It's a little pricey, but well worth it...More

Wow! Amazing!!! You start off right outside a 2 mile tunnel! Be prepared, you will need a good light on your bike and or a headlamp, the brighter the better. The tunnel is very dark, wet, and cold, a light jacket is highly advised. The...More

This is a downhill, hard packed dirt trail that follows a former rail line, so the grade is not a steep downhill. It has several tunnels and trestles...a unique experience but not for those who are claustrophobic or afraid of heights. There are amazing views...More
