It was intended to be a fall color sightseeing trip but I guessed it was a little too early for the leaves to change color here in California in October (It turned out that the leaves' colors were at their peak during the second week of November). Still we had great time riding on the steam engine historical train and... More

Our family was in the area and decided to visit the Sugar Pine Railroad. The entire staff was welcoming. They held the train for us and assisted my elderly mother boarding the train. We had small children and teens with us and we all had a great time. Shane was our conductor and guide. He was educational as well as... More

They had BBQ for dinner, Serenaded by the Sugar Pine Quartet, The train will then take you down the campfire where more singing and entertainment. You will then take the train back the dark mountain way under the moonlight. Total... More

Went with a group of friends for the Moonlight Melodrama train. There was good parking, and a steak (or chicken) dinner was included. After dinner, we board the train cars behind a geared steam locomotive for the trip down into the forest. It is a fun run down, with narration on the history and the flora/fauna you are passing through.... More

Took our two boys and had a great time! We rode the logging train and listened to the interesting facts about the old loggers and learned about local flora and fauna. When we got back, they had a neat museum and a couple of gift shops and a gold panning setup where my son was happy to discover he'd found... More

We had an amazing time riding the train. We went on a Friday in summer, which was busy but not crowded. Please see schedule cause the last train departure was at 2:00 pm. My kids had a blast panning for gold. The gentleman that runs the panning for gold is very accommodating, knowledge and entertaining. Don't forget the gift shop... More

Was a good change of pace from the National Park! amazing the regrowth of trees in 85 years! The history of the Sugar Pine railroad was interesting but the train was authentic.

We saw this on our way into Yosemite, and stopped on our way out. It's a quaint ride through the Sierra National Forest with commentary on the history of the lumberjacks. We sat in the logger train car. The family was comfortable after 4 full active days of hiking and exploring inside Yosemite. The train is a steam engine locomotive... More

While visiting Yosemite, the owners of the B&B where we were staying suggested we take our son on the Moonlight tour. So on Saturday night we went to the cookout dinner then on the train ride to the camp fire sing along. It was fascinating to ride the steam train. Our 9-year-old was fascinated. The camp fire sing along was... More
