The trail is crushed gravel. The east trail has little change in elevation. The tunnel does not have lighting. Headlamps and/or high powered flashlights are strongly recommended. It stays cool inside the tunnel at roughly 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the time of year. Please note that water drips from the top and sides of the tunnel interior constantly, creating ruts and puddles on the interior of the tunnel trail path and is a natural occurrence.
