Train Trestle

Pope Lick Park

Built in the late 1800s, the Train Trestle north of the Pope Lick Park entrance rises 90 feet and spans a distance of 772 feet through a countryside of fields and brush and small trees. Superstition haunts this region. Local stories and short films have asserted that the Pope Lick Monster, a half-man, half-goat creature, lives around the trestle — and many people claim to have seen it. The trestle is safe to view from the ground, but since it’s private property and still active, please stay off it and the railroad tracks.
