Everyone knows about the Moonville Tunnel. Shrouded by mystery and buried deep in the Zaleski State Forest, Moonville has captivated the interests of ghost hunters, historians and hopeless romantics for years.

But have you been to the King Hollow Tunnel? Chances are good that you have hardly even heard of King Hollow. This tunnel is located along the Moonville Rail Trail and is very close to Lake Hope State Park. For the sake of full disclosure, the tunnel is located in Athens County, not Vinton, but since we have seen an increase in queries about the tunnel at our Visitor’s Center I thought you would like to know about it too.

The tunnel is located along the Moonville Rail Trail but there are several bridges missing along the way so getting there from Moonville isn’t really worth the hassle. I will give you directions at the end.
