Love this place. Quiet and beautiful despite crowd. The trail through the tunnels is fascinating and the mountain side is scenic. A nice walk morning or afternoon.

Last year marked 100 years since Andrew McCullough's famous five tunnels were completed near Hooe. Regarded as an insurmountable project, it became for Engineer McCullough, yet another challenge. If Andrew made an attempt to rediscover his tunnels today, he would be dismayed at the deterioration...More

The tunnels are 'officially' closed for the winter (not sure of the exact months) but if you're adventurous, the left side of the first gate has a fairly easy climb around (done it).
