This bridge crosses the lower Cosumnes River at the edge of the preserve. Work crews were replacing track that had buckled on the levees due to sinking. Two trains of over one hundred cars passed in a period of four hours.
The railroad was here before I-5. The self guided trail loops under a concrete land bridge several times. The land rumbles when it goes by.
