    Trestle 16/Black Brook EB&L partial collapse this year

    I was poking about Chris Dailey's blog, always one my favorite places to read, and one of his recent trips caught my eye showing the trestle at the Black Brook crossing on the Wilderness Trail. It was clear to a lot of people after the October storm caused a shift in the supports that another section was soon to be doomed:



    Well, looks like it finally gave out the past few months.

    October 6, 2018 (from Chris' blog)


    You can see I'm standing on the west abutment, with the section crossing the brook intact. Chris' photo shows the brook section now collapsed.

    Yep, 15 and 16, trying to find some sled roads, plus a closer look at 7 and 8.

    Wow, so it happened some time between Salty's pic on May 8th and June 16th when I went out there on that day, must have made one helluva noise! Here's a few more pics of it from June view from above, view from lower bank, view from the brook

    Cool, thanks for narrowing down the dates even further. No big events on the E. Branch:

    Guess the strain alone was enough to do it in.
