Mary's Rock Tunnel on Skyline Drive

This tunnel that was constructed in 1932 cuts through Mary's Rock which is a 3,514 foot mountain along Skyline drive. This tunnel is 610 ft (190 m) long and cuts straight through. This was impressive for the CCC (Civilian conservation Corps) to build as they built Skyline Drive for Shenandoah National Park. 

Its fun to drive on through and yell out your car window and hear the echo!
