10/18/14 (Saturday) - This is one of those things that's just fun to experience. It's also a great way to get over (or worsen) a fear of the dark. It took us around 45 minutes each way. There were quite a few hikers and bikers making the trip going westbound, but we were pretty much alone returning eastbound because we left later in the day. I climbed on top of the tunnel entrance on the west side to get some pics. It's a little tricky, but there are rebar steps on the north side that can be used to scramble up. The views to Granite Mountain are pretty good. Bring some binoculars (and a coat). The tunnel closes Nov 1st, so act quickly if you want to go. Coming here on Halloween would be perfect. Great location for a haunted house.

Thursday 10-31-2013: My wife and I went on a spookiest hiking ever - Snoqualmie Tunnel. It is a 2.3 miles long railroad tunnel, which was decommissioned in 1980. It is now used as a cycling and walking trail (Dogs on leash are also allowed.) and a part of Iron Horse State Park John Wayne Pioneer Trail. We parked our car at Hyak parking lot. We are the only one at the parking lot. The toilets there are the best and the cleanest. The tunnel is completely dark and GPS and cell phones don't work. My wife didn't like it because it was too creepy. The only clue for your progress is the number 0 through 41 spray-painted in green on the wall. The sound of dripping water from the ceiling added more creepiness. We started walking at 10:30 and reached the other end at 11:20. We quickly turned around and returned to our car by 12:20. We didn't see anyone else while we were in the tunnel. We had lunch in our car because it was raining and cold. This was our weirdest and spookiest experience ever. It may be a nice cool hike during hot summer days.

Not a mind blower but the river makes it worth it along with the old railroad tunnel. Easy going and good for families.
Also easy to do in off season weather.
