The Shortest Tunnel In North Carolina Has A Truly Fascinating Backstory

The Blue Ridge Parkway is home to 26 spectacular tunnels; 19 of them are in North Carolina. And the shortest Parkway tunnel in the state is worthy of more than just a drive through. It’s called Craggy Pinnacle Tunnel and its location, alone, creates a stunning visual for all who approach from either direction on the highway.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
