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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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.
