    Come ride the SKUNK in its natural habitat. Forty miles of skunk line run through majestic Redwood forests, scenic mountain meadows, and over 30 trestles bridging the pristine mountain waters of Northern California. Celebrating 129 years of service!

    Located in Northern California’s Mendocino County there is a skunk running through the redwood forest, but this isn’t any skunk, it’s the world famous Skunk Train. The California redwoods, pristine coastline, and award winning vineyards are all a part of the landscape of what makes Mendocino County such an amazing place and home to this 131-year-old train.

    Regardless of your departure point it’s the occasional whistles as your train chugs through tunnels, over bridges and past open meadows, the train follows the coastal “Redwood Route” as it has since 1885. It is the towering trees, a glimpse of a deer drinking from the Noyo River, an isolated fisherman’s cabin peeking from the forest, and the notion that you have left the rest of the world behind that draw people to the Skunk Train.

      I had such a great experience here. We went on a weekday so we had pretty much the whole train to ourselves. The train itself was not a rough ride, you can stand outside to get a better view or switch to a seat inside the cabin. It took us through green terrain and even a gorgeous creek.

      There’s a small bar that serves beer and wine with some snacks. Everyone working there was very friendly and approachable when we had questions. I highly recommend this place, it can be a romantic day trip or a family friendly trip.
