There's only 1 tunnel, really, and its in no way a half mile long by itself (a 1/4 at best for all of the 'tunnels' combined). It's also not all tunnel - the 2nd half was much more recently engineered, and its probably to protect the trail from rock/snow slides. Not what I would call picturesque by any stretch of the imagination on that 2nd half.
After the tunnels, the book says it's level all the way to the old mile marker at the 2 mile point. This is also not true, it's a steady uphill climb from here for about a mile to the 2 mile point.
I'd say he got the part about their being tunnels on this hike partially right (since there is only 1 now that the rock catchment system is in place), and the fact that it's pretty hot here in the summer right. Other than that, I think it's obvious the author has never even seen this trail before.
Bring lots of water, if you go in the summer.
