A good place to visit if you're in the area and have some free time. We went because the weather was bad in Yosemite (mist and snow) so it was quite difficult to actually see the park and we wanted to kill some time. The...More

A lot of history comes to life on this one-hour train ride through the dense forests near Yosemite NP. Once a logging train, this 1928 steam-powered engine grunts and groans up the steep grades and blows its whistle as it lets off steam. The narrator...More

The Sugar Pine Railroad is a great place to visit and is a complete contrast to Yosemite. The engine itself is impressive as it belches steam and reminded me of those in Westerns or Casey Jones. The ride lasts about an hour during which you...More

Excellent day trip and ride on an old railroad. Loads of fun and learning as the train takes you down the old lumberjacks trail.
