It appears to be that Ian has the wrong grade height's marked, maintaining the 4% grade past the coal mine should place you close to 3&1/2 inches at the trestle approach and
something like 4&1/2 inches at the logging site. This will provide the necessary clearance for the lower tracks.
Lowering the section of layout under the trestle would
enable you to built a trestle taller then 3&1/2 inches across the canyon, this is something I would consider.

Happy modelling of the layout, as it looks like an interesting design.
