This train ride was great. We could change cars, sunny or shady, and the train conductor was very informative, giving area history in a one hour narrative. They sold snacks on board. I recommend sunscreen & a shady hat that can't be blown off. The...More

The train ride is fun and fairly interesting. The price is very reasonable and they offer different times to travel. However, the train goes up the hill and then comes back in the same direction. So if it's a busy day you'll want to make...More

This is not a cheap trail ride. We were stunned by how expensive the tickets were, but decided to go anyway based on other Trip Advisor reviews. In my opinion save your money and get a better overall mountain view by driving the Top of...More
