This was an interesting visit, We had a range of kids from ages 18 to 8 and all enjoyed and for a few moments all become kids at heart! Bring water on the hotter months overall would do again!

We rode this train round trip from Sumpter to McEwen and back to Sumpter. We bought the family pass, so it was a pretty good deal. The two train stations are really nice and restored beautifully. The train itself is just beautiful, with a variety...More

The Sumpter area is a very interesting trip into when ecological concerns didn't exist and the valley is a strong testament to that. Piles of stones line the area where the old dredge tore up the entire countryside in search for gold. The Sumpter Valley...More
