Tusher Tunnel is an interesting geological feature. A crack in the rock has allowed water to seep in until reaching a harder layer in the rock. Where it met the harder rock, it eroded a tunnel from one side of the cliff to the other. The tunnel length is likely 25 m ( 83 ft. ) or more in length, and high enough throughout to easily walk through.
Tusher Tunnel is a great roadside attraction for all, as the hike from the trailhead (with a high clearance vehicle) is less than 5 minutes.
From the highway 191, north of Moab, turn off on the Blue Hills Road just south of the Moab Airport, at milepost 142.8 on the west side of the highway.
From the trailhead, follow the obvious short trail to the tunnel. On the other side of the tunnel is a photogenic and interesting area to hike around and explore. This is particularly fun for families and kids.
