Description

A logging railroad trestle construction over Balke Creek in Little River Valley, circa 1907-1910. Little River Redwood Co. constructed a short line to join the Carson Co. line toward Fieldbrook. This was the highest single spile trestle (110 ft) in the world at that time. The engineers didn't like going over this trestle, as it wiggled.
