The Sugar Pine Railroad is a nice excursion between Oakhurst/Bass Lake area and the south gate of Yosemite. If you've ever been on a mountain railroad like this in Colorado or similar places, this one is much shorter in time. The entire trip is about...More

Took the logging steam train into the Sierra National Forest. The route follows the route taken by early logging trains. The steam engine is a huge, powerful engine that goes through the forest while the conductor tells you about the history of the logging industry....More

This is an hour-long ride on a narrow gauge railroad. It not exciting but is something different to do. I would recommend it if you are in the area.

Had a great time on the moonlight train ride. Definitely recommend this ride. The highlight was Engine 10. If you are into trains, you have to see the shay drive up close. Just incredible. Look forward to going back during the day and ride again.
