Adventurous souls love overgrown rail tracks and abandoned stations. Forgotten spots have become quite a trend in the past few years. We’ve seen all those photos of people visiting these places. There’s something beautiful in all that wilderness. If you are a nature lover, you will definitely love rail biking.
Rail biking gives adrenaline junkies a chance to explore nature and enjoy the ultimate experience. There are about 50 rail-trails across the country. Disused railway tracks are now used for walking, cycling, horse riding, and snowmobiling.
The Skunk Train railroad runs across the North Coast and it was first built in 1885. There were times when visitors used it to reach the ancient redwood forest. The Skunk Train brought joy to people of all generations.
It takes three hours for you to go from San Francisco to the Redwood Forests. Nature explorers love the spot and pretty much everyone chooses to jump on the Skunk Train railbike route.
You can use the custom-made rail bikes with two seats and pedal through the forest. Of course, the bikes fit well on the tracks, and safety is guaranteed. You don’t have to worry about any trains or other vehicles. It’s time to enjoy the ride!
Low noise electric motors will replace your tired legs whenever you don’t feel like pedaling. Would you take this 1.5-2 hour round trip?
It starts at Fort Bragg, goes all the way to magnificent Pudding Creek, and then melts into Mendocino County. The trees are more than 1,000 years old and some of them are about 300 ft high!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the scenery is beautiful. Being surrounded by all these giants magnificent, and you will leave the forest with peace and love in your heart.
Bird lovers will see a lot of blue herons and osprey. Deer, otters, and turtles are a common sight around rivers. The Glen Blair Junction marks the halfway spot of your tour. Rest your body and stretch your legs. You can have a picnic before walking into the woods. Breathe in, and enjoy.
