Here is KentuckyKLR's snap of Enchanted Creek 1881 from 2 weeks ago - while riding the BRT:


What was the original purpose of this tunnel under the BRP? I've ridden thru this a dozen times & always wondered why it was built. There's always a very little bit of water running through it, but it doesn't appear to align with any significant drainage channels.

All around this area there are traces of light gage logging railroads that remain from the time prior to the BRP. Was it possibly a light gage rail tunnel? A road tunnel? Something else?
