“Vacation 2018”

The Tunnel To Nowhere
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Nice ride and views, however, the road had a few pot holes. Flashlights are a must or u may step in mud puddles or horse poop. Very heartbreaking to see and know that this was a broken promise to people who had to give up their homes for the construction of the dam.

My Husband and I came here today. The drive is really nice. The road has some pot holes. The overlook is breathtaking with the river below and all the beautiful mountains. The tunnel itself is dark and a little scary. It kinda reminds me of the movie IT. I was waiting to see a red balloon. LOL. The inside of the tunnel is all covered with nasty graffiti. I would recommend a flashlight if you are scared of the dark.

If you've never seen it, it a creepy walk through a tunnel that should never have been built. Huge waste of money. But they didn't know it would turn out this way. Read the back story before you go (and don't ask a local - you never know what kind of story you'll get).

The is a local favorite for hiking and horse riding (bring your own) as it is steeped in local history and culture (refer to Lake Fontana and the Fontana Dam TVA project).
