All aboard the Skunk Train! Journey on this historic 130-year-old rail line amongst towering old-growth redwood trees, over wooden trestle bridges, and through majestic stone tunnels. Lucky travelers might spot osprey, blue herons, and egrets as the train passes alongside the Pudding Creek Estuary, before diving into the redwood forest and seeing some of the tallest trees on the planet. Trains depart from both Fort Bragg and Willits, so be sure to check the Skunk Train calendar while planning your trip. The Skunk offers many different experiences including a ride on the railbikes and specials throughout the year.
If you’re visiting during the holiday season, be sure to catch a ride on the Christmas Train. Riders are treated to hot beverages served by elves, carolers making their way through the train, and a surprise visit from Santa!
