The Tunnel

NABSQNO 12S 621233 4279921 Utah     MAP

The Tunnel is a highly unusual feature, a lot of fun to visit, and is only a 1.5 mile hike (one way) from the main Park road. It is a bit of a scramble to get up inside it, but well worth the effort. Once inside, you can see how seeping water between two rock layers played a major role in its formation. The opening is about 4 feet wide, 5 feet high, and 53 feet deep. You can walk all the way through it (stooped) and scramble out the other side without the need for a flashlight once your eyes accommodate. This feature is in Upper Courthouse Wash and is number UC-7 in the Stevens-McCarrick catalog. Photo by David Brandt-Erichsen.
