    Has anyone dove in the flooded tunnel called "saddle tunnel"?

    Is diving allowed there? I'd not heard of the place and I could not find anything about it being a dive site. All I could find is that it's a part of a city park in Walhalla.

    I've been wondering myself. Looks like it could be a cool site for cave divers..from the pictures

    It looks like a slog-through tunnel for pedestrian park-goers.

    Stump house tunnel has three entrances. The main one everyone uses, a second entrance that is gated off entirely, and then a third one that the entrance is flooded. Is that the one you're referring to as the saddle tunnel? I've been in the main tunnel more times than I can count, and to the second entrance twice. It's a very strenuous hike there with no gear at all. If I'm not mistaken the 3rd entrance is more than twice as far away as the second entrance. Absolutely no way to make it that far with any sort of dive gear.
