C.O.R.P. - Grave Creek Trestle
Posted January 9, 2014, by Mike Goff (michael [dot] goff [at] hotmail [dot] com)

If I had to guess, I would estimate this trestle to be 100' to 125' above Graves Creek, but that is just an estimate. I may or may not have walked the trestle when photographing it, so it should be a reasonable estimate.

Does anyone know the height of this trestle? I used to live near it.
