Lawyers Canyon Wooden Train Trestle
In order to cross Lawyer's Canyon and other Camas Prairie gorges, a series of high railroad bridges was built in 1908. Most were timber. This structure is 1500 feet long and 296 feet high. Since fire is always a danger with wooden trestles and bridges, this one was constructed with well spaced concrete partitions to prevent the uncontrollable spread of a fire, should one occur.
