Physical evidence of the site shows that at least two concrete piers sat beneath this later trestle, proving that it was a new construct from its predecessor. An extant sign on one of the piers still reads "DANGER: Keep out from under bridge as rocks etc. might fall from passing trains." The two bridge piers that once supported the trestle are all that remain of this site. The trestle remains are accessible via Wrights Station Road off of Summit Road. At the bottom of the hill, Los Gatos Creek meanders under an old bridge. The trestle remains down the creek roughly 100 feet north of the bridge. The road passes through the town site of Wright's, though little evidence of any settlement remains today. The entrance to the Summit Tunnel is accessible via the small meadow to the left of the road just before crossing the auto bridge. Warning: This area is patrolled by the San José Water District and they have been known to ticket trespassers.
