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.
