Ride the Logger! Ask for your 10% discount coupon at The Redwoods Front Desk!

Just 10 miles from Wawona, the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad offers excursions with authentic, historic Shay locomotives and Jenny Railcars.

Visitors may enjoy a narrated four-mile round trip into the National Forest as the conductor shares tales of long ago, when the Madera Sugar Pine Lumber Company still operated along the same roadbed. You may choose to ride on an open-air log car or covered passenger car, and your well-behaved dog is also welcome on the trip. You may even find homemade doggy treats on the menu at the lunch counter.

After the train pulls back into the station, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy lunch in a beautiful setting, do some gold panning, tour the museum and browse the gift shops.

Cab rides and tours of the engine house can also be arranged for those true train aficionados. Or, ride the Moonlight Special with a bonus BBQ, campfire songs and stories — a family favorite.

The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad has the largest narrow gauge Shay locomotive ever built. The Number 10 and the Number 15 were the first and last Shay locomotives to leave the West Side Lumber Company’s property, and are still in service for all to enjoy.

At the Station Gift Shop, you’ll find an array of unique gifts, original artwork, and an interesting selection of books. Subjects range from trains to nature, Yosemite, local history, and some of the colorful characters who lent their names and escapades to the fascinating history of the mountain area.

At the Thornberry Museum, visitors will get a glimpse of logging life at the turn of the 20th century. Museum admission is free of charge.

To complete the journey back in time, visitors are invited to dip their hands into history and relive the excitement of the California Gold Rush by panning for gold in the authentic sluice boxes. The prospector will teach you the proper techniques, just like the 49ers used, and gold-panners get to take home their treasure.

Guests can also enjoy an evening filled with entertainment during the Moonlight Specials. Start with a BBQ dinner in the picnic area, complete with musical entertainment, followed by a train ride to the half-way point, where everyone disembarks for an old-fashioned sing-a-long around the campfire. Then, it’s all-aboard for the steam train ride back up to the station in the moonlight, as the whistle blows its lonesome sound out across the forest. It’s a great family atmosphere, and the perfect outing for friends and family visiting from out of town.

It’s also a wonderful place to bring the grand kids. There are folks who return year after year, and plan their vacation around a treasure that’s right in your own backyard.

Plan to make a day — or a night of it. Visit Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad for more information.The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad is located at 56001 Highway 41 in Fish Camp. Visit them on Facebook to see what’s happening at the Railroad.
