Just east of the Golf Course is this filled in Tooele Valley Railroad trestle

Here at the Oquirrh Golf Course you can play a round of golf and get a glimpse into Tooele’s Mining History.  If you walk to the south side of the golf course and look out towards the northeast, you will see the area over which the Tooele Valley Railroad traveled back and forth from the International Smelter & Refining Company facility.

Look for the old train trestle east of the golf course main building.  It was filled in with rock to increase stability. Next, look up at the mountains and find the white T. You will learn more about the T later.
