Miller's Hollow Creek Frisco Trestle
Posted May 7, 2017, by Nick Schmiedeler

This one, like so many others in the several-mile abandoned- RR stretch alongside "Old 71" is in rough shape, but a fun visit. Tick season is officially on (never ended?)....pulled off 3 on my leg heading north after this quick visit....
