A ride on Verde Canyon Railroad’s historic route from Clarkdale to Perkinsville and back – into Arizona’s other “grand canyon” – is an unforgettable adventure. The Verde Canyon Railroad is a stress-free wilderness adventure featuring an abundance of native flora and fauna, rugged high-desert rock faces and remarkable vistas. This exclusive view of the Canyon is only accessible by rail. The train passes towering crimson pinnacles, near ancient Native American ruins, over fortified trestles, past a monocline fold and through a manmade 680-foot tunnel. Our four-hour rail journey takes you from the old mining town of Clarkdale to the Perkinsville ghost ranch and back. This historic ribbon of rails – between two national forests and adjacent to a national wilderness area – follows the upper Verde River, a lush riparian habitat blessed with astonishing beauty. Expert narration and seasoned car attendants leave you with an appreciation of the history, archaeology, geology, wildlife and Native American lore of the Verde Canyon. Music and narration are an integral part of the trip as you make your way through Arizona’s longest-running nature show … railroad style.
