Most People Have No Idea This Unique Tunnel In Southern California Exists

If you’ve never heard of the Burro Schmidt Tunnel in Southern California, now is your chance to get a glimpse of this historic passage carved deep within the El Paso Mountains in the Mojave Desert. And this isn’t just any ordinary tunnel. This hidden mining tunnel stretches a half-mile long and was carved out entirely by hand by a single person.

What a bizarre story! Is this the first time you’ve heard of this historic passage in Southern California that was carved out completely by hand? Even if you’re not up for exploring inside the tunnel, it’s quite the experience to see the surrounding area up close and in person so make it a day trip and go check it out.
