The Rockland Tunnel

Constructed in 1913, the Rockland Tunnel serves as a shortcut around the historically treacherous Wood Hill Mountain loop and passes through what was once a busy village named Rockland Station. The tunnel is 2,865 feet long and is now part of the Allegheny River Recreational Trail in Rockland Township, Pennsylvania, about 21 miles south of Franklin via the trail which follows the meandering Allegheny River. The southern end of the tunnel is prone to leaking and in the winter provides a spectacular display of ice formations. To order a print, just click on the photo to enter my fine art print site.
