Explore the Santa Cruz Mountains on a historic train ride through a redwood forest from Roaring Camp in Felton, California. Admire the ancient redwood groves from the comfort of a steam locomotive chugging up the hillside. Venture into the forest and learn about the region from your informative train conductor, then explore an old-fashioned village where you can shop and take photos. This journey is fun for the whole family and a great way to see the beauty of California, as well as learn about the state’s railroad and engineering history. All aboard!

Experience California’s redwoods as never before, by taking a steam train through one of the Golden State’s towering ancient forests. Be inspired by both the natural beauty of the groves and the engineering prowess of this hulking locomotive, which dates back to the 1890s.

Hop aboard the train at Roaring Camp in Felton, near the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just 80 miles south of San Francisco. Settle into your open-air car and hang on as you chug past hundreds of old-growth redwoods with an unobstructed view.

As you make your way up to the top of Bear Mountain, you’ll cruise over trestles and glide beneath the verdant canopy. Along the way, the knowledgeable train conductor will illuminate the forest with bits of history about how it was formed and facts about the local wildlife, as well as stories about the railroad and Roaring Camp. Learn about how steam locomotives similar to the one you’ll be riding are among the oldest and best preserved narrow-gauge steam engines in America, and were once used to schlep redwood logs down from the mountains. You’ll have plenty of time to admire your surroundings on the 1-hour round trip ride.

At the summit, study the architecture and visit the old-fashioned general store. Capture the moment in the vintage photo booth and peek inside the charmingly woodsy sheriff’s office. Stretch your legs and take in the majestic surroundings on a nature stroll through nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.

Please note: Picnic tables are available at Roaring Camp for all-day rental. Inquire at the ticket office when you visit. Gates open at 9:30am, and parking closes at 5pm, unless trains are still operating. There is an $8 per vehicle parking fee.

Explore the best single track mountain bike trails Santa Cruz has to offer on this 2-4 hour mountain bike tour.  Ride incredible single track trails through towering Redwoods and up scenic hills with impressive views of the Pacific Ocean.  Learn the best routes to ride a mountain bike with the help of an IMBA certified professional mountain bike guide. Rides for all abilities and levels. Rental bikes provided through partner bike shop and our guides will handle this for you.

The mountains around Santa Cruz offer some of the best single track mountain bike trails on the West Coast.  Groves of old-growth redwood and live oak intermingle with grassy hillsides and encompassing views of the ocean to create a stunning post-card image of the best of Northern California.  While you could try hiking the hills to find the perfect photograph of the area, the best way to experience the rugged terrain outside of the college town of Santa Cruz isn't on two feet - it's on two wheels.  

This 2-4 hour, guided bike tour of challenging single track is not for those looking for a relaxing beach cruiser ride down a white sand beach.  Bring your own bike or let the guide know you need to rent one and they will make sure you are using the right equipment for your mountain adventure.  Your starting point will depend on your skill and comfort level - just let the guides know ahead of time, and they tell you where to start and meet you there.  From the trail head, your IMBA certified mountain bike guide will push you (not literally) up demanding hills, across picturesque ridge lines and under beautiful groves of beautiful trees.  

The trip will include a skill session with your instructor to help hone your general mountain biking skills along with water and energy snacks to ensure you are properly fortified throughout the day.
