Gilman Tunnels

For some time, I heard about the tunnels out of Jemez in the Jemez mountains.  Did not find them during a couple trips into the area.  A ham radio friend (and photographer) mapped it for me.  To find the tunnels, take US 550 to San Ysidro. North on NM 4 to just North of Jemez Pueblo.  Take NM 485 which turns into Forest Service road 376.
