Historic Timbers, 1902
All of the solid fir timber beams used in Hoppers were cut from trestle pilings used to supports the Southern Pacific Railroad trestle in the Great Salt Lake.
The wooden trestle know as “The Lucin Cutoff” used in 1902 provided a means for the train to cross the lake in a shorter time. The twelve mile trestle was replaced 100 years later by a solid fill causeway.
