Verde Canyon by Rail
Here's a day trip we highly recommend… for…
Scenery, History & Mystery.
It's a great way to have a getaway with pals.
A romantic journey.
Or big family fun!
The Verde (Green) Canyon is a historical and scenic wonder.
Did you know it's officially an
Arizona State Treasure?
We think a ride on the Verde Canyon Railway offers one of the most enjoyable ways to see it all.
Starting with the train itself, it's a novel experience. With all-access open-air cars, and lots of different ways to enjoy the ride. The Journey The Verde Canyon Railroad Depot is about 20 miles from Sedona (see turn-by-turn arrival directions below).
It runs from Clarkdale to the Perkinsville
Ghost Ranch, and takes about 4 hours roundtrip.
On the train, you'll
journey through towering canyons and wide open vistas. Through a 680 foot long tunnel and over a historic bridge.
You'll see the remains of a centuries-old
Native American cliff dwelling, and an old pioneer settlements. And, likely, lots of wild critters, too. Watch for the majestic bald eagles, along the way.
