Stickpile Tunnel

Intro - Slide 04

The WM bored Stickpile Tunnel to cross a bend in the river. This tunnel like most is in great shape. After exiting the tunnel the trail passes the former town site of Green Ridge Station. Here was once the headquarters of the Mertens Orchard Enterprise known as Green Ridge Valley Orchards. The WM leaves Green Ridge west thru another large cut before crossing the C&O Canal and river again on the 3rd. bridge.
