Moonville Tunnel

Moonville TunnelEerie and looming, Moonville Tunnel is said to be haunted by a drunken brakeman who worked for the railroad in the mid-1800's and was hit by a train in the middle of the night. He is said to be seen in the evenings, walking near the tunnel with a lantern.

To get to Moonville Tunnel, from State Route 93-Take State Route 56 to State Route 278 south-following the signs toward Lake Hope State Park.

You will pass the iron furnace on the right and then the park lake. After the lake, make the first left on to Wheelabout Road. Almost immediately, the road will fork-veer to the left side of the fork. Follow this road until you get to a metal, one-lane bridge crossing over Raccoon Creek. Cross the bridge and parking and the tunnel are just ahead on the left. There is a bridge, now, crossing Raccoon Creek so it is just a short walk and can be accessable by most wheelchairs and strollers (although there are large train bed rocks on the trail).
