Geocache Description:

Pretty easy cache, come see the Holcomb Creek Trestle.

Some info/history on the Holcomb Creek Trestle: It's about 60' tall and 1100' long. Built around 1911 as part of a line intended to connect Portland (through Cornelius Pass) to Hillsboro, Banks, Vernonia, and Tillamook. The Cornelius Pass tunnel (4100' long) and several large trestles like this one took several years to complete. The United Branch (as it's known) was mostly used for lumber as it still is today. Feel free to add your own notes on the history if you have any, as I'm still new to the area and info on this was hard to come by. Side note: The pool of water nearby is called Mullerleile Pond and unfortunately it's on private property (signs everywhere). There are some kiddie goodies to start off the cache. Enjoy! Congratulations to Geo.Otter for FTF!
