  • Enjoy a unique travel experience aboard electric-assisted railbikes
  • Explore the lush redwood forests with ease
  • Ride along historic trails, and spot native wildlife
Full description
Ride your railbike along scenic Pudding Creek, cross over majestic wooden trestle bridges, and journey into the heart of the ancient redwoods of Mendocino County. Pedal along historic trails, bathed in dappled sunlight and a light breeze. Without the need to steer, feel free to look around at the wonder of an untouched stretch of the natural world. Keep a lookout for blue herons, osprey, an occasional lounging turtle, perhaps a playful river otter, a deer munching on the foliage, and maybe even a bear. Disembark at Glen Blair Junction for a 50-minute layover to enjoy a picnic or to journey on foot deeper into the redwoods to walk amongst some giants on a loop trail, past blossoming wild iris and trillium, and over the iconic arched stone bridge. Renewed and recharged, ride back to the depot at Fort Bragg, with plenty of photos and memories of your excursion.

It was a blast! Jordan was a guide with personality, knowledge and compassion!! It was one of the most fun excursions we've had in many years. Exciting but not over the top...our group had the young and young at heart and even a furry companion on the ride. This is one that we'd recommend to all and we know you won't be disappointed! A must do!

Make sure you only book 1 if there are 2 of you. I made the mistake of booking 2 thinking that I was booking for 2 people when in actuality I was booking 2 railbikes. I was unable to get refund since I didn’t find out until day off. Instead I got a gift card. It was my mistake and I hope this info helps others from doing the same. The experience itself was great and I recommend it!
