Fall Tours at the Verde Canyon Railroad

Fall Colors Tour on the Verde Canyon Railroad

October – November 2016


The monsoon season has been active in the Verde Valley and Sedona which means the “Fall Colors Tour” on the Verde Canyon Railroad is spectacular this year! This Fall excursion into the Verde Canyon is absolutely one of our all time favorites! Passengers on the Verde Canyon Railroad are treated to a gentle ride through a high-walled canyon painted in an array of vibrant autumn hues that shimmer and change around every curve in the track.

“The peak of the fall colors in the Verde Canyon depends on temperature, sunlight, and rainfall amounts. Timing can vary each year and can never be predicted exactly, however, passengers can generally be assured of viewing brilliant colors October through Thanksgiving, with the colorful climax reaching its peak during early November. Reservations should be made early, as this is a very popular time.” – Verde Canyon Railroad

October and November bring crisp nights followed by warm sunny days beneath a sky achingly and endlessly blue. Be sure to keep a sharp eye peeled for wildlife. Sightings of deer, javelina, coyote and other species increase this time of year and migratory birds return to the sanctuary. You definitely do not want to forget your camera! The open air cars offers you a chance to get some great pictures!
