THE HOCKING HILLS IS A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT
Where one can find the Haunted Moonville Tunnel “Deep in the backwoods of Vinton County stands the Moonville Tunnel, a relic from an era long gone. The town it is named for was born when the Marietta and Cincinnati railroad was built through the coal- and iron-rich woods of southeastern Ohio in 1856. At its peak in the 1870s, the town boasted a population of more than 100--almost exclusively miners and their families.”Click on above link to read more. For the purpose of this post ( Watery Wednesday ) a few photos of the trail and bridges to the Moonville Tunnel.
I just crossed Raccoon Creek on the one lane bridge in the distance and parked my car on the side of the road ( Wheelabout Road, Township Highway 18.) About 200 paces down the trail which was once the railroad tracks of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad you once again come to Raccoon Creek which you must cross in order to get to the tunnel.
In another post We will explore the tunnel itself which is not only haunted but……… in the mean time explore our watery world at Watery Wednesday
