The Chelatchie train is many things. Rickety, small, and a bit quaint, but the journey itself is quite charming nonetheless. A nice short, outdoor railroad run that has some surprisingly nice, albeit simple, backdrops and views. Santa Claus is at the end stops, and they...More

I brought my son who was visiting from Phoenix. He was amazed at the train, the fact he could climb on everything. The only this I would recommend is more information posted on the history of this railroad.

We took advantage of a mild sunny day and got onboard the vintage train. Friendly volunteers try to make the boarding process easy. Passengers board via an open-air flatbed car which is equipped with wooded benches mounted on metal braces. There are also two covered...More

It's fun any time of year, but in the summer the river is high and crashing, gorgeous weather and the Winery nearby, with food as well. What more could you ask for!
