Rail bikes were a great way to see the Skunk line from the Fort Bragg side. The guides, Ashton and Cameron, were outstanding!

I want to say the staff at the Willits Train Station are outstanding. My interaction with Diane is/was amazing . I have rarely had a person show so much care in a situation such as ours. We had an emergency happen and Diane showed such care and understanding for us. She even was kind enough to place s call and followed up on my husband medical emergency. We will also be about to use our tickets at a later date. I can’t say enough of how wonderful Diane is. Blessings Diane, 🙏🏽 Yaja Thank you for everything 💕

It was really awesome, one thing I would suggest is more porta potty for that many people. I would do 4 for men and 4 for women. The line was long and they filled up really quick. Other then that really cool place to hang out!

Great experience. Would recommend more seating in the area as the train holds a lot to the location

This experience was fine. A little over Priced. But I know there is upkeep on those trains. not really what I expected but I could say I rode the skunk train. Great for kids it was fun watching them.

From the lady that issued our tickets and sold us our souvenirs to the coffee girl on the train to Rick, the train singer and His son Malaria, it was an amazing experience. It was a lovely, therapeutic journey. The time in Crowley was meditative and magical, awe inspiring to stand small among the redwood giants. Thank you!
