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 from a quarter mile.
There used to be a ski resort near this trestle many years ago. We took a quick look around to see if anything remained of that, but we saw nothing. If anybody has any information on what, if anything, remains of the old Trestle Valley Ski resort, please contact us.
