Very random question, but I distinctly remember an abandoned tunnel, possibly a train tunnel, in the hills the locals called "hobo's tunnel." This was going back 40 years, so it is possibly it is sealed and forgotten, or even that I am mis-remembering the area. I would like to find it if it exists, just for urban exploring purposes.

Well, if it would be findable by you, you can bet it's been found by the homeless.

I think you're talking about SP "Tunnel #5". Here's some more info:

I don't know who owns the tunnel but it seems it's been leased for storage from even way back in the early 70's when I worked out of Bayshore.
