National Recreation Trails 2004 Photo Contest/Cuyahoga-054.jpg

The Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Trail in Ohio. The high structure is the historic trestle built by the New York Central RR in 1907 to bypass congestion in Cleveland. It's 160 ft high, 1988 ft long and still carries 40-50 trains a day. Beneath it are a variety of pipelines. The trail passes under all of this in a structure much like a covered bridge, presumably to protect trail users from stuff falling from the trains (photo by Mary Shaw; all rights reserved).
