Great staff - friendly and engaging. Interesting historical commentary from the conductor. A mix of open and covered carriages. Take a covered one if you want to keep out of the sun!

We had the 1h tour on the logger train. I thought the trip was a bit short considering the price of the tickets, but it was excellent and well narrated. There was little else to do - the Jennycars follow the same route, the museum was tiny and the gold panning was expensive.

We visited the Yosemite mountain Sugarpine Railroad today for their Moonlight Run. For the sum of $58 each we had a good meal with a choice of chicken or steak, entertainment, an evening ride on the railroad and a campfire sing-along. prior to the ride we were able to visit a bookstore, museum and a gift shop to learn the...

What a treat! Panning for gold and museum on site. Live entertainment during outdoor dinner. 45 minute train ride with narration to a roaring campfire. (Get your camera ready!) As the sun set we sang more songs and then rode the train back. It was a wonderful experience. All ages were there. I highly recommend that this event be a... More

A nice place to spend a couple hours (the actual trip on the train lasts an hour which includes a ten minute stop within the forest). There is a great commentary throughout the trip which provides the history of the lumber in Sugar Pine and the role of the railway. You can choose to ride in the open log cars... More

We made a point of stopping here, because I wanted to ride behind a vintage Shay in the West (I'm a big fan of Cass Railroad in West Virginia). The ride wasn't long - only an hour - but one still gets a good feel for the old logging railroad. During the 20-minute stop mid-way, we had a nice conversation... More

We rode the logger car on the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. It was a fun hour long ride through the Sierra National Forest area. It went down through Lewis Creek Canyon area. The logger cars are open air. One can also ride in open air covered train cars. There is a ten minute stop in the middle of the... More

We opted for this trip at the very last moment and glad we did it. It was very beautiful journey through the sierra national forest and pulled by a steam locomotive really enhances the experience overall not to mention the narration of history by the conductor. The train has two type of wagons one with shade and other without. As... More

We did the evening dinner, train ride and sing a long on a Wednesday evening in June. Family of 4 with 2 kids ages 8 and 12. We stayed in Yosemite Valley and I was worried that it would end so late the drive back would be rough - but it only took about 45 minutes and was fine. Our... More
