Remarks & Notes 
At 630 feet long and 186 feet tall, Goat Canyon Trestle is the largest curved trestle and second largest trestle of any kind in the world. It was constructed in 1933 when tunnel 15 (in the foreground) caved in during an earthquake. While it has been a few years since a train has graced these rails, the trestle is a popular spot with local hikers.
