What happened to the best tunnel under the big rock?

Nicely marked trails, beautiful views, and if you walk through purgatory chasm and keep going you run into a trail that leads you to little purgatory chasm. The stream and small water fall at little purgatory chasm is a beautiful place to sit, reflect, read,...More

If you googled your question... you would probably get your answer there in more detail. It was beautiful and interesting.. it was a natural chasm , not man made! That’s all I know... I was there to hike.
