Uintah Gilsonite Railway (United States)


The Uintah Railway was built during 1905-1906 to haul gilsonite from Dragon, Utah to Mack, Colorado. This was a narrow gauge railroad that surmounted 6% grades over Barter Pass. Not only was the railway engineered over very difficult terrain, but it was also a sole product line. Only gilsonite and passengers were carried on the Uintah. The Whiskey Creek Trestle, while a rather ordinary pile-driven trestle, is significant in that it is the only remaining part of the railway that is remotely intact. The roadbed leading up to and away from the trestle is intact and a visitor can see how and where the railroad was constructed.
