Clifty Falls Tunnel Closed for 2009 Season All caves, sinkholes, tunnels and mines on DNR properties are closed to provide protection from White-nosed Syndrome, a fungus that is killing bats in large numbers in the Northeastern U.S. and is now spreading west. This includes the old railroad tunnel at Clify Falls. To learn more about WNS, visit www.dnr.IN.gov/batdisease. Thank you for cooperating with IDNR in this effort.
