Gassman Coulee Trestle
Our May 2010 trip took us through Minot, so we stopped to take some photos of this — the Gassman Coulee Trestle in Trestle Valley, just outside of town.
The bridge is 1792 feet long and 117 feet tall at its highest point. When a train crosses, you can hear the rumble miles away.
The Sheyenne River Bridge near Karnak is one step larger than this bridge.
Years ago, there was a ski resort in this valley called the Trestle Valley Ski Resort and this was the lodge. We’re told it is now a home. If you have any photos of the Trestle Valley ski resort, we’d love to see them. Please contact us.
