Visited on Saturday, August 26th with my daughter Caroline and her husband Cristian. The weather was beautiful. The views are magnificent. You can rent bicycles, helmets and lights (for the underground tunnels) from Lookout Pass and Recreation. It's a little pricey, but well worth it...More

This is a totally lovely bike ride. If someone was claustrophobic the tunnels could be a problem. Make sure to have a very good head lamp and the tunnels will not be too bad. The views are fantastic and the ride is quite easy, it...More

Wow! Amazing!!! You start off right outside a 2 mile tunnel! Be prepared, you will need a good light on your bike and or a headlamp, the brighter the better. The tunnel is very dark, wet, and cold, a light jacket is highly advised. The...More
