How high are any tressels?

I am considering a spring ride on these two trails. I have read there is at least one high tressell and am wondering if there is a way to avoid it without adding too many miles.

I am one of those people with a fear of heights and am used to detouring to avoid them.

Just want to say that I'm also not all that thrilled with heights.

However, the pumpkinvine creek trestle that you are referring to is pretty wide and is enclosed by a pretty tall 5 rail wooden fence, it's not a problem for me, at all, even though I really do hate heights, this one feels secure, it's pretty easy to ride across and not even look over the edge, it's about 120 feet tall, but there are a lot of trees on the north side that kindof make it hard to see the actual creek below.

Google pumpkinvine creek trestle, lots of pictures.

Here is a link to it on google maps, i really don't see an easy way around it:,-84.8834538,16.97z/data=!5m1!1e3?entry=ttu
