Full view of wooden trestle

Wilburton Trestle is the most spectacular feature of the Eastside railroad. Despite the rural appearance, it is located only about a mile from downtown Bellevue. Wilburton Trestle is the largest wooden trestle in the Northwest. It was originally constructed in 1904, and the area below it was an arm of Lake Washington until the lake was lowered in 1916. The trestle is used daily, including by the Spirit of Washington dinner train and by freight trains. (Photo: Eastside Rail Now!)
