What to Wear and Bring:

  • Dress in layers. As you head up to the high country the temperature can drop and change completely. Snow is possible even in July! Bring a warm jacket, warm hat, rain gear, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, water and of course your camera!

Important Considerations:

  • Kids 4 and under can ride on your lap if you want to save the money.
  • Wear dark clothes because of the soot from the train.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from cinders that can come from the steam engine.
  • We recommend the open air gondola for summer trips.
  • You can bring your own snacks for the train, but alcohol is not allowed aboard the train.
