Mountain Charlie Tunnel East
Mtn. Charlie Tunnel, Glenwood portal, is right off of the Glenwood Highway and
Mtn. Charlie Road intersection, left of the Bean Creek bridge. The tunnel is
caved in just inside the entrance.
Sadly, the rails were ripped out in the early 1940s.
This is Los Gatos Creek below Lexington Reservoir.
Rail supports remain to carry a water pipe, which has been removed. 1998
Bridge supports are still there, but they're obscured by trees today.
The water pipe was removed. 2010.
The track ran through the Wildcat Canyon. It
followed the Los Gatos Creek Trail over the flat
section, but then headed closer to the creek. Of
course, the route is long since gone, but it went
through what is now Lexington Dam and reservoir.
