Directions to the Moonville Tunnel and Cemetery



To get to the tunnel:

Follow US Route 33 to Nelsonville.
Turn onto State Route 278 South.
Continue on OH-278 South until you see Lake Hope on the right.
After you pass the lake, turn left onto Wheelabout Road.
You'll soon come to a fork in the road - take the left fork which is Shea Road.
Follow Shea Road for a couple miles until you come to a steel truss bridge.
About 100 feet or so past the bridge you will see a gravel path to your left. This will be the first gravel path you come to...park here to access the tunnel.
To get to the tunnel, walk back to Shea Road and cross the bridge.
Right after you cross the bridge you'll see a path to the right. Follow this path along the creek and up a hill. You'll see the tunnel to your left at the top of the hill.
