Built in 1883 across Wolf Creek, Lobato Trestle is the second highest trestle on the C&TSRR. It is 100 feet above the creek, and 310 feet long. The construction is a unique design using steel bents and no cross bracing. The original trestle burned in 2010, and has been replaced by an exact replica of the original.
