Description SVRy. Trestle on Clear Creek on Baker White Pine Logging Railroad.

Brooks Hawley note; The White Pine logging railroad was put in at Curry about 1921. The steel was taken up in November 1939. There were three trestles: on Little Dean Creek, Dean Creek, and Clear Creek (or a side canyon coming into Clear Creek). This was the biggest trestle, 110 feet high and 900 feet long. It was torn down about 1948.
