Protocollie's Set: The Sideling Hill Tunnel

Photobucket

On our trip to the Abandoned PA Turnpike, we only got as far as the Ray's Hill tunnel, leaving the longer Sideling Hill tunnel unexplored. Lucky for us, Protocollie has taken an excellent set of photos in and around the tunnel, and we've definitely got a bigger picture of what the Abandoned Turnpike looks like now.

Protocollie has a lot of interesting notes about these photos in his Abandoned Sideling Hill set on Flickr -- it's more than worth heading over there and reading through them. Thanks again, Protocollie!

Awesome photos. It's amazing how much is still intact. I like the massive ventilator fan. I've heard that the abandoned turnpike is now open for biking and hiking. Is this true?

we were directed to it by a park ranger, so i assume they are okay with people visiting it. be warned that by the time you're in the middle of the tunnel it is in all literal senses -pitch- black, so bring lighting. Literally there are about a hundred feet or so where you can't see your hand in front of your face.
