Trestle Near Lovell's Ranch     38°56'41.88"N, 121°2'28.44"W


Description

Workers cut on one side and filled on the other in order to build a level trestle across the ravine. The wooden trestle shown here was made of both cut timber and logs. It was meant to last only until a more permanent structure could be built.

Description

The original trestle has disappeared. The ravine has been filled in, drastically altering drainage patterns and the original landscape. The widening of road bed has allowed the construction of double tracks where there had previously only been a single track.
