TUNNEL STATE PARK called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William
Jennings Bryan, has been attracting visitors to the mountains of
Southwest Virginia for more than 100 years. Today, it is the focal point
of Natural Tunnel State Park, an 850-acre park owned and operated by the
Commonwealth of Virginia. The 850-foot-long Natural Tunnel is more than
one million years old. The Norfolk Southern Rail System uses the track
that winds through the natural tunnel on a daily basis. Visitor access
to the tunnel is by a hiking trail or a chair lift. Once you make the
530-foot descent, a 500-foot boardwalk and observation deck are
provided-both accessible to physically-challenged visitors.
DANIEL BOONE WILDERNESS TRAIL is one of the nation's most historic routes. The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail was blazed by the legendary frontiersman in 1775 from Long Island of the Holston at what is now Kingsport, Tennessee, through Scott and Lee Counties and Cumberland Gap of Virginia into Kentucky. It would become the route for hundreds of thousands of settlers of the western frontier. For more information, call (276) 452-4520.
Chartered in 1778, Abingdon has
long been a center for culture and commerce. The first English
speaking settlement to be incorporated in the watershed of the
Mississippi, Abingdon was the principal distribution point for mail
and supplies on the Great Road to the farthermost wilderness of the
West. Abingdon was truly "the Gateway to America’s Frontier." It
offers great history, charm and romance!
Natural Tunnel, called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William Jennings Bryan, has been attracting sightseers to the mountains of southwestern Virginia for more than 100 years. Today it is the focal point of Natural Tunnel State Park, a park which offers visitors not only spectacular sights but also swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking, a visitor center, an amphitheater and interpretive programs.
The creation of Natural Tunnel began more than a million years ago in the early glacial period when groundwater bearing carbonic acid percolated through crevices and slowly dissolved surrounding limestone and dolomite bedrock. Then, what is now Stock Creek was probably diverted underground to continue carving the tunnel slowly over many centuries. The walls of the tunnel show evidence of prehistoric life, and many fossils can be found in the creek bed and on tunnel walls.
Location: Natural Tunnel State Park is in Scott County, approximately 13 miles north of Gate City and 20 miles north of Kingsport, Tenn.. To get there, from I-81, take U.S. 23 North to Gate City (approximately 20 miles). Take State Route 871 and go one mile east to park entrance.
Road State Park was purchased in 1993; the park is approximately
200 acres that lie astride the "Wilderness Road." Wilderness Road was
carved by Daniel Boone in 1775 to open America’s first western
frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion, built in
the 1870s, and Martin's Station, a replica of a fort built there in
1775. Click here to visit the Friends of Wilderness Road's website,
which provides details about the fort.
