This is the first tunnel from Elkhorn City. It’s near the entrance to The Breaks Interstate Park. This is Pool Point Tunnel, 642′ long. It’s just a short hike down from State Route 80 out of Elkhorn City.
And here is the trestle over the Russell Fork River at the other end of the Pool Point Tunnel. The river forms a pool just about 50′ (or so) below this trestle. It’s really pretty here. Going across this trestle and on down the track for about a mile we’ll hit State Line Tunnel… and find a surprise.
