Goat Canyon Trestle

Ron Niebrugge Anza-Borrego, California, Photos, Travel 6 Comments

A mountain biker crossing the Goat Canyon Trestle in the Carrizo Gorge.   At 200 feet tall and 750 feet long, this beautiful trestle it the longest, tallest curved wooden trestle ever built in the United States.

I have been wanting to visit this amazing structure located in a remote portion of Anza-Borrego for some time.  A year ago, fellow photographer and writer Bert Gildart hatched a plan to mountain bike old railroad to this trestle.  We were able to complete our plan this past week and it was a blast!

I’m getting ready for another workshop this weekend, but will provide more details and images of this trip next week.

  1. What a thrill, Ron, to see a familiar figure in a red shirt atop Goat Canyon Trestle. Hope we can embark on a few more adventures in the future. What a trip; and such grand company!

  2. Wow! That is amazing! We had a wonderful time with you and Janine in Borrego, now that we are leaving the sun is shining again. Enjoy the rest of your visit. See you at Alyeska to watch Reilly ski soon.

  5. I remember Huell Howser went there on one of his California’s Gold episodes. You captured it beautifully. What an amazing sight. If I still lived in Lake Elsinore, California I would make a trip out there myself.
