Seabeck Trestle

Map 

Description 

This appears to be a remnant of a former logging railroad that existed near Seabeck. The trestle is/was 40 feet above the fork of Seabeck Creek, rumoured to be 100 feet long. The owner of the Seabeck Store, Billy Mills, produced a spike from the rails, on his last visit, proof of its existence. Getting to it is problematic as the area is a checkerboard of state DNR lands and private residences. The easiest way Mills said is to go down Cowboy Lane and park near the last residence. Look for the Blue DNR Gate. Go a ways on the old logging road then head down to the right to the creek. On the right and up a ways is the bridge. Many people out here have dogs and presumably firearms. Bear known to frequent area. Best to use common sense or ask Billy Mills to take you.
