Sit back, breathe deep, and discover an entirely new way to explore California. Electric-powered and virtually silent, custom-built, two-person railbikes will take you breezing along the world-famous Redwood Route. You’ll wind your way along scenic Pudding Creek, cross over majestic wooden trestle bridges, and journey into the heart of the ancient redwoods of Mendocino County.
Peddling along historic tracks, bathed in dappled sunlight and a light breeze, you’ll experience a new freedom on the rails, unlike anything else. Without the need to steer, you’re unbound, able to look around at the wonder of this untouched stretch of the natural world, spotting blue herons, osprey, an occasional lounging turtle, perhaps a playful river otter, a deer munching on the foliage, and during peak berry season maybe even a bear. Disembark at Glen Blair Junction to enjoy a picnic or to journey on foot deeper into the redwoods to walk amongst some giants on the loop trail, past blossoming wild iris and trillium and over the iconic arched stone bridge.
Renewed and recharged, you’ll bike back to the depot at Fort Bragg, with photos and memories to last a lifetime. All their Railbikes Explorer Packages include fare for two people on a side-by-side railbike, with a certified guide leading you on the historic Skunk railroad from the coast to Glen Blair Junction, with a stopover at Glen Blair Junction, which features picnic tables and a redwood loop trail (with both casual and intermediate difficulty options).
