Full description
Join this magical train ride through the redwoods on the world-famous Skunk Train. Since 1885 the historic train has made its way through old-growth redwood groves, through spectacular tunnels, and into the heart of the Noyo River canyon. 

On this 2 hour round trip, discover an amazing ecological wonderland and an excellent opportunity to discover the mighty giants that made Mendocino County famous. Your train ride will stop briefly at Crowley while you enjoy the splendor of one of the oldest and most iconic trees along the route. The Wolf Tree was so named for the large growth off of one side.

The original Skunk Train began as a logging route back in 1885, transporting families and workers to and from logging camps. The train received its now-famous nickname back in 1925 when motorcars were introduced that ran on gasoline and which had a pot-bellied stove burning crude oil to keep the passengers warm.
