The Pigeon Mountain tunnel is located in Walker County, Georgia northwest of Lafayette. Today, the tunnel is out of service and the rails have been taken up to a point about a mile north of the north portal in Hedges, Georgia, at the south end of the Chattooga & Chickamauga Railway's west district.
