Anonymous,i have the dvd in my hand as we speak.The name of the movie is "Max best friend.Hero.Marine".You are probably right about this trestle being the one

.I am not sure about the location of the trestle.That's why i asked if anybody knew about the location of the trestle i was talking about.Great movie,though.The handler was killed in Afghanistan.Thanks again for your help on this Anonymous and Dana and Kay.

Filmmakers framed the Max finale using a trestle at the junction of the Yadkin and the Mitchell River, a tributary just northeast of town. For the most inviting view, rent a kayak from Yadkin River Adventures and paddle the clear waters. The trestle is also visible from the newly opened Burch Station access point
