This Moderate, 8.4-Mile Hike In North Carolina Leads Straight To An Abandoned Tunnel On A Road To Nowhere

Hiking in North Carolina is always an adventure, and the Road to Nowhere and its abandoned tunnel are legendary and a must for avid hikers and sightseers alike. Found within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the tunnel was part of highway that was never completed. It was to be built as a compromise with families who were displaced by the rising waters of Fontana Lake after the dam was built.
