Description

The Trestle Trail is an easy walk in a forested setting along both sides of the Zealand River. The trail begins at the Zealand Road Sugarloaf Trailhead and follows the west side of the river for about .5 miles where it crosses the river over a footbridge. From this point the trail passes through Sugarloaf Campground and returns to the Zealand road parking area completing the loop.

The footbridge has been built in the same location as the railroad trestle, which was used for logging in the late 1800’s. Thus the name "Trestle” Trail. The Youth Conservation Corps constructed the trestle trail in 1984. The footbridge was built in 1985 as a cooperative venture between the 368th Combat Battalion, US Army Reserve and the Forest Service.
