This Arizona Hike Leads Straight To An Abandoned Tunnel

Arizona is home to quite a few tunnels, but none quite match the remoteness of this one. Hiding in Tonto National Forest near Devil’s Canyon is Claypool Tunnel, an old thoroughfare that’s been abandoned for more than 50 years. It’s located along a beautiful trail, accessible year-round to all fitness levels. Let’s take a virtual hike, shall we?
