Pinkerton Tunnel - Help us open the Pinkerton Tunnel!

Great Allegheny Passage currently takes a 1.5 mile detour around a deteriorated railroad tunnel, near mile 52 in Somerset County. Besides shortening the distance, fixing the tunnel will create another spectacular feature along the trail. Located between the Pinkerton Low and High Bridges, the "bridge-tunnel-bridge" in quick succession will be a marvel. It will also make a great way to create a loop ride, using the tunnel and the detour trail.

Please donate now to the "Passage thru Pinkerton" to contribute online, click here.

Or send your tax-deductible contribution to:
Somerset County Rails-to-Trails Association

Gifts of over $500 will be acknowledged on a plaque at the tunnel.

The opportunity is here. Let's open up the old WM Pinkerton Tunnel!
