The Loops: Snipes

Going almost due north after the bend, Snipes tunnel, the south portal, is at 35.843095, -82.034873.  It’s 637′ long and sits at 2,368′ above sea level. I don’t have any information on the name Snipes.  I thought it was named after a geographical feature, but after going over the maps again, I can’t verify that.  It’s dated 1916.
