In case anyone is planning on taking a hike into the trestle just a heads up there are rockfalls at the east portals of tunnels 8 &16. The fall at 8 isn't to big, but the one at 16 is huge. !6's entrance isn't completely blocked but there's quite a pile to scramble over. I haven't been out there personally but saw the photos on another site.

For those of you wondering where tunnels 8 and !6 are. 16 is the tunnel just east of the Goat Canyon Trestle. (Dos Cabezas side of the trestle) Tunnel 8 is between Jacumba and the Goat Canyon Trestle.


As for the railroad..... The PIR filed for Bankruptcy protection. The reasons for the bankruptcy move are many. They still haven't filed any paperwork, EIR's, to start any construction work. So there's a whole lot of nothing going on.

Something I found while hiking above the tracks on the old service road. North of the trestle. Powder house II. Service trail runs about 3 miles on top.

Nice, I have wanted to hike that service road but have not made it so far....have hiked all of them south of the trestle though.

Don't think any ones been on it for a long long time if at all. Found another road to the north east. Ran out of time. Only did about half of it. Will hit it again later.

That's a great find. The few times I've been out in the gorge, I've noticed many trails heading up the sides of the gorge. I've guessed that they're work trails and have wanted to head up to the top and explore them. Now I know what's up there. One of these days I'll actually make it up on top of the gorge
