Some relevant information 

Written by Brian Manville

At one time, this overpass allowed the railroad to pass through Jamestown without holding up traffic wanting to continue on Route 58 to eastern Ohio. It eventually became a rails-to-trails location.

You can park just about anywhere around the bridge, but the best location is in a gravel area on the east side of Route 58 just after going through the underpass.

The bridge can be climbed to reach the trail, but the "steps" are rather high. The hillside is somewhat steep.
