The Trestle bridge was originally built in 1872 by the Toronto-Nipissing Railway.

Today, Trail users can safely cross the Uxbridge Trestle Bridge, which at one time carried the weight of trains transporting wood and grain from northern Ontario to Toronto. When Trail users continue on along the Barton Trail, which was once rail-bed, they walk in the footsteps of railroad workers and settlers who made Uxbridge a major railroad hub over a hundred years ago.

The trail is name after a dedicated resident, John McCutcheon, who in collaboration with Trans Canada Trail Pan Am / Parapan Am Legacy funds, restored the bridge.
