The trail to get here was difficult to locate without the help of locals. The trail to get here was also a bit challenging for my daughter with her knee brace. Be sure to wear good shoes and be ready to climb over roots, tree trunks, and loose rocks. But, boy is it worth it! The trail is beautifully shaded... More

This was a great hike, it was a fairly easy hike and scenery to remember. There was nothing I disliked.

It's a simple hike but the trail is not well marked so make sure you have the directions in advance. There are some mini signs nailed to the trees but they can be missed easily. The trail to the wreck is a simple hike, there are some loose stones in some parts but all in all very easily doable. You... More

And it's not because of the train wreck. In order to get there you walk thru a trail next to a river.... the water gets bigger and bigger until it turns into Class V rapids.... Just when you thought you've seen everything, a massive powerful waterfall appears around the corner! You're are standing above it just steps from death... Very... More

A great hike although not signposted at all so get directions before you go and print them off/screenshot them before you go!

Well worth a trip. Bit strange to be walking along train lines to get there, but if you take routes off to the side you follow a charming little walk through old forest with several impressive waterfalls. Once you get to the trainwreck itself, admire the grafitti art work and the mountain biking wooden jumps, though the jumps are not... More

Follow the "flank trail" & once you pop out at the train tracks, quickly jump across into the trees and you will see the trail picks up again and goes south. There are a few times where the trail will pop you out at the tracks again and you just have to quickly run south alongside them until you see... More

We followed the directions and got as far as the train tracks but then we got lost as we couldn't find the path once we had crossed the tracks as there were quite a few paths leading from the tracks. Make sure you really research where you are going before you head out to avoid disappointment. This also is not... More

quick hike from the road. if on the trail you get to see a lot of great views of the river. You will see a few waterfalls also. once you get to the train wreck there are lot of things to check out. be careful climbing all over the wrecks. Also, once you get to the main wreck, there is... More

Neat and easy short walkabout with a purpose....lets go find the train cars!! The walk is doable for nearly all ability levels though can be a bit tricky to follow at time so print up directions or have them available on your smart device while you go. Along the walk stop to enjoy the small trails to the rivers edge... More
