Hero: Morrison Knudsen Tunnels
small-sr Icon
The San Rafael Swell seems such a strange location for an unknown "experiment." The Morrison Knudsen Tunnels lie in the north end of the San Rafael Swell, in the hills right next to Buckhorn Wash. These tunnels were completed in 1952 and have little history written about them. The Department of Defence provided limited answers, so one can only imagine their true purpose. If you are interested in the history of the Swell, be sure to check out this area and read all about this strange tunnel complex.
