Most People Don’t Realize An Underground River Flows Right Through West Virginia

Few people know West Virginia is home to a fascinating natural wonder: a river that flows underground for more than a mile and a half. In The Monongahela National Forest lies a tunnel that’s 8,114 feet long and as wide as 100 feet in places. The tunnel features Gandy Creek, a tributary of Dry Fork.

The Sinks of Gandy is located near the West Virginia community of Osceola, a former logging town. The Sinks is on private property; please don’t explore without permission from the landowners.
