Wed. July 17th 6:00pm at overlook turnout just before the Concrete Bridge

Come join us for a scenic and historical look at the old railroad tunnels over Donner Pass.

The first tunnel was completed in August 1867, and the first train passed through it on June 18th, 1868. The last train passed through in 1993 when the route was changed to a new location. We will be meeting at the overlook turnout just before the Concrete Bridge. Don't forget to wear good shoes,bring some water and a flash light- some tunnels can get very dark.
