Snoqualmie Tunnel, June 2002

On June 13, 2002 I visited the Iron Horse Trail for the second time. This visit started at Hyak (I-90 exit 54) which is just 0.4 miles east of the Snoqualmie Tunnel.

After walking the 2+ mile tunnel beautiful sunset views of the Cascade Mountains were reviled. The tunnel is not lighted and is far too long to be illuminated by the day light. If you take this hike make sure to have a good flash light with fresh batteries.
