Take a ride on Arizona’s longest-running nature show!
Visitors and locals alike always enjoy riding the rails on the Verde Canyon Railroad, located in Clarkdale, Arizona, only 30 minutes from Sedona, Arizona. This fully restored vintage train takes you on a leisurely 4 hour journey into the Verde Canyon, where history and beauty surround you during every moment of this 20 mile excursion.
Along with offering climate controlled indoor cars they also have open-air viewing cars equipped with shaded canopies for all aboard the train to enjoy! I have personally taken this relaxing journey many times over the years and the open-air viewing cars are my favorite! When you visit the open-air cars there is a feeling of tranquility and peace as the often gentle breeze hits your face and your senses are filled with the the beauty of the Canyon, and the rhythmic sound of the train. I have often seen a nest or two of the Bald Eagles that live in the canyon and was lucky enough on different occasions to see a bald eagle soaring above. They also have attendants on the cars who are extremely knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna of the canyon, and are always willing to answer questions.
There are three types of accommodations aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad – caboose, first-class and coach. All are wonderful and all passengers are welcome to visit the open-air cars.
