The No.1 Tunnel
This is a nice little stroll from the road, along by a river. If your into the old tunnels and getting some muddy feet, you might as well take a walk. The Conical Hill Tunnel was built as the first and only tunnel on the Tapanui Line which branched off the main south line at Waipahi. The tunnel is 71 meters long and a nice short public walk from the West Otago Road. There is not much left from the Tapanui Line which operated from 1880 to 1978 when a large flood from the Pomahaka river broke the banks and destroyed a lot of the tracks and bridges.
