Solsberry, Indiana: America's Longest Railroad Trestle, Formerly

A half-mile long and 16 stories high -- at one time the longest, and still long enough to be worthy.

CR-480 E., Solsberry, IN
Go to the Solsberry store and ask for directions. Or ... from I-70 exit 41 drive south many miles on US 231 to Worthington. Turn east on Hanna St./Hwy 157 for 3.5 miles, then turn right to stay on Hwy 157 for another 1.5 miles. Turn left onto CR 400 N for 1.5 miles, then turn right onto CR 300 E and then quickly left back onto CR 400 N. Follow for 1.5 miles. Turn right onto CR 410 E. After less than a mile, turn right onto CR 480 E. The Trestle is a half-mile ahead.

Not much to do at the trestle, but if you enjoy history and the historical as I do then this place is awesome.

America's Longest Railroad Trestle, Formerly

Off the beaten path but definitely worth the trip. We were lucky enough to see a train go across.

America's Longest Railroad Trestle - Formerly

For years the Solsberry Trestle was the Longest Railroad Trestle in America. I have since heard there is one longer. When going to look at it; I stopped at the Solsberry General Store. I asked directions and was given very friendly, concise directions. Then as I was leaving the storekeeper said "If you don't find it, don't come back." I thought that was funny! For years it has been a spot for thrill seekers to bungy jump and young kids to make out.
