Significance: The timber trestle is associated with events that have made significant contributions to the broad patterns of our history, i.e., early 20th century coal mining in Utah and the western United States. The trestle is an integral part of the overall Standard coal mining operation in Gilson Gulch, one of the most successful and prolonged mining ventures in the Spring Canyon District. It is one of the oldest surviving mining structures in the district and is representative of early 20th century coal mining engineering technology. The site retains integrity of setting and physical integrity and therefore is able to convey feeling and association with its period of historical significance.
