This stream is Georgetown Creek that flows aprox. 3 miles NW of this picture into Indian Creek. To my knowledge of studying streams in Indiana there is no Yellow Fork River in the state. There is however a Yellow River that goes through Plymouth and Knox but it is located in Northern Indiana.

This trestle is located on the southwest side of Georgetown and is totally located in Floyd County.
