Wolf Creek Trestle

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The Wolf Creek Trestle, Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad (bobcat)

Description

This trestle bridges Wolf Creek at the toe of a deep horseshoe bend on the Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad, which began as the Pacific, Rail and Navigation Railroad in October 1911. The trestle is made of treated wood and was in better condition than the Big Baldwin Trestle after the December 2007 storm, which effectively shut down this section of the railroad for good. Still, the Wolf Creek Trestle has been condemned by inspectors, and the rail line has been completely undermined in places near this trestle, making repairs prohibitively expensive.

The trestle is just south of the Walcott Tunnel, Tunnel 27. Salmon are still unable to spawn in Wolf Creek because of that storm's damage.
