Halloween is the perfect time of year to reflect on the past. As the steam train whistle echoes through the forest, your conductor will recount history of the line, the trees, the wildlife and maybe even ghost story or two.

He’s a member of the Visit Yosemite | Madera County Welcoming Committee and part of the Fossils to Falls Road Trip. You’re invited to visit the railroad to pick up your Ricky trading card and join the Yosemite Adventure Contest.

About Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad
Located on Highway 41, just four miles from the South Entrance of Yosemite National Park, home of the Mariposa Big Trees, Glacier Point, Half Dome, and the many wonderful waterfalls of Yosemite valley. This attraction is 15-minutes driving time from Oakhurst, or one hour from River Park in Fresno.

The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad is a historic trip through time aboard one of two nearly century-old Shay locomotives. Once used to haul lumber through the mountains, the steam engines now take passengers through the Sierra National Forest as they learn about the loggers, miners and others who settled the area in the 1800’s.

Other activities available at the railroad include gold panning and the Thornberry Museum. Learn to pan for gold as experienced prospectors teach you the proper method. You keep the gold you find! The forested grounds make a delightful setting for birthday parties and other special events. For those of the canine persuasion, well-behaved dogs are welcome at Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad.

About Visit Yosemite Madera County
The Southern Yosemite Visitors Bureau was formed in 1985. It has been operating at the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau for 30 years. The Bureau was established by a group from the Eastern Madera County Chamber of Commerce with a vision of the growing potential for drawing the millions of visitors to Yosemite National Park to the many businesses and attractions in Madera County. Recently the visitor’s bureau changed its name to Visit Yosemite | Madera County to more accurately reflect its mission to promote all there is to see and do in Yosemite and Madera County.
