Ever Been in a Tunnel Under a Lake? Here’s Your Chance to See Lake Arrowhead From the “Bottom Up”

Come on up to Lake Arrowhead and enjoy the Antique and Classic Wooden Boat Show June 7.  It's a beautiful site and sight!

Members of the Rim of the World Historical Society will soon  host their 2014 Lake Arrowhead Tunnel Tour. This fascinating tour, which can include being in ankle-deep  water as well as having rocks and debris  to climb over, will be given August 16, September 13 and October 4. Have you ever wondered what is at the bottom of the lake and how it was made? If you’re a curious historical society member here’s your opportunity to have some of your questions be answered by people who know what they’re talking about!

The three events are  only available to historical society members and the fee is $35 per person. The tour will feature “what’s under the lake”  Everyone knows what the lake look like from but what “lies beneath” must be quite interesting.

The construction of the dam for the reservoir began in 1893. The history of building the infrastructure and the entire dam project is so interesting. Today we just look at it, if you have a boat you ride your boat around, if you have a dock you enjoy the view right in front of you and if you’re visiting you oooh and ahhhh at the beauty. Very few people know about the history so if you’re curious call (909) 336-4796 to make a reservation.

The late, great Huell Howser visited the site many years ago. Now THAT would have been fun. I don’t know anyone that didn’t love that man. His infectious curiosity was charming and I’ll bet he loved climbing  around the tunnels under the lake. He was such a curious man!

Come and have a unique experience. You’ll be fascinated, I’m sure!
