Roaring Camp Steam Train Through Santa Cruz Redwoods
"Experience California’s redwoods as never before by taking a steam train through one of the Golden State’s towering ancient forests. Be inspired by both the natural beauty of the groves and the engineering prowess of this hulking locomotive which dates back to the 1890s. Hop aboard the train at Roaring Camp in Felton near the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains just 80 miles south of San Francisco. Settle into your open-air car and hang on as you chug past hundreds of old-growth redwoods with an unobstructed view. As you make your way up to the top of Bear Mountain you’ll cruise over trestles and glide beneath the verdant canopy. Along the way the knowledgeable train conductor will illuminate the forest with bits of history about how it was formed and facts about the local wildlife
