This was a nice relaxing way to spend some time in the forest. The conductor entertained us with a lot of interesting background information about the origins of the railroad, as well as the history of logging in the area. (He was funny, too.) After the ride, the snack bar offered a back-to-basics lunch of peanut butter and jelly with... More

My family enjoyed riding the historical steam train. Staff is very nice and informative. Kids loved the train. Went there the day after a storm and the place was full of snow which added to the joy of the ride. 1 hour ride you should not miss if you are in the area.

Visited the railroad whilst staying in the Narrow gauge inn next door. We were lucky to be there on the opening weekend of the year and rode the steam train into the forest. The commentary was entertaining and informative, and as an engineer the steam train was very impressive to see running. Definitely worth a visit if you're passing and... More

The entire experience was fun and educational. Traveling on the old narrow gauge tracks was a first for me and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Additionally all of the staff in all of the areas of the attraction were informative and friendly.

my family loved the train ride in a steamy, and the kids also enjoyed the pretty grounds and even the gold panning lesson.

Take a trip into the past and experience what a Shay locomotive train trip is like. I recommend travel in the covered cars for best protection from the weather.

I loved the whole exursion from beginning to end. From the historic perspective to the kicking back and enjoying beautifull scenery. My 14 year old daughter and 16 yea old son enjoyed it, even though there was no video game or interactive experience! It was really a unique experience to travel down the tracks and imagine how life was back... More

We took advantage of the Saturday night dinner and train ride in late August 2014. The dinner was lovely and the train ride and campfire singalong , very enjoyable. The entertainers were fabulous and all the staff very efficient and friendly. We booked our tickets well in advance, glad we did. There is also a gift shop on site with... More

Fun adventure into the forest on the train. In the summer they have a small entourage playing fun music at the bottom of the mountain.

We went on a drought year, so there was no snow in January. They had the train open for holiday service and it was a very fun hour long excursion on a narrow gauge engine. My three year old was in heaven. They have a cute gift shop and very nice people running the railroad. We visit every trip we... More
