Tunnel is marked over 14' towards the center but under 12' at the edges. There is usually too much traffic to ride...

Thanks Packnrat, we're staying at St Michaels just 2 blocks from Stead. I'm an old "Vegas desert rat" but if the sun gets too much for the DW it's a short walk to the Cougar and some shade:)
