According to the guide book, the structure is 200 feet high and 750 feet long. It is purported to be the longest curved trestle in the country (world?). Several attempts by vandals to burn it down have failed (obviously). Rumor has it the trestle has been used by Navy Seals for demolition training (sure hope they do a better job in time of war).
