  • This was an hour and 15 minute ride. At the end point, you can get off and hike on some beautiful trails and get on the later train if you want. The is food and drink on the train.  more »
  • My husband and I went on the railbikes with our boys and it was so worth the price. We had such a great time. The scenery was so beautiful. Fun guides lead the way. There's a break for a nice hike....  more »

  • It was a nice comfortable ride. I guess I expected more scenic. Stop at Crowley was nice. Did get to see some redwoods. Conductor that was entertaining us was great. Has a wonderful spirit and enjoys what he does.
  • A friend and I recently got to enjoy the rail bikes that the Skunk Train started this past year. So much fun! What a neat way to experience nature. We would both highly recommend it, and we will definitely be back again!
