Our Skunk Train has been named one of the Best Tours by Train in the United States by USA Today! This is what they had to say:
"The Skunk Train is a wonderfully scenic and historic passenger railway that has been transporting passengers through Mendocino County's redwood region of Northern California since 1885. The train travels between Ft. Bragg, a small city that's popular with tourists due to its breathtaking coastal views and plentiful attractions, and the quaint town of Willits, which is the gateway to the redwoods and Mendocino County's award-winning wine region. Besides having activities on either end of its route, this rail trip is worthy of the list for the ride alone - trains chug over bridges and past open meadows, following the same coastal "Redwood Route" that they have since 1885. The towering trees, the occasional glimpse of a deer drinking from the Noyo River and the isolated fisherman's cabin peeking from the forest create the notion that passengers have left the modern age behind."
