Onawa Trestle was built in 1931 and spans approx. 1230 feet.
Onawa Trestle, is a great place to hike to. The Onawa Trestle is 1230 feet long and 130 feet above Ship Pond Stream.
Onawa Trestle is just up the road from Wildlife Lodge approx.2 miles and this is the only road that leads to the trestle.
Onawa Trestle is the longest, highest railroad viaduct in Maine. The current carrier, Montreal-Maine-Atlantic Railroad, operates trains on a highly unpredictable schedule over this trestle so you always have to be aware of it and listen for the train.
