Sit back, breathe deep, and discover an entirely new way to explore California on a Skunk Train rail bike excursion along Pudding Creek.

Wend your way along scenic Pudding Creek, cross over majestic wooden trestle bridges, and journey into the heart of the ancient redwoods of Mendocino County.

Pedaling along the historic tracks, bathed in dappled sunlight and a light breeze, you’ll experience new freedom on the rails, unlike anything else. Without the need to steer, you’re unbound, able to look around at the wonder of this untouched stretch of the natural world, spotting blue herons, osprey, an occasional lounging turtle, perhaps a playful river otter, a deer munching on the foliage, and during peak berry season maybe even a bear.

Enjoy magnificent views along these historic tracks and then disembark for a 50-minute layover at Glen Blair Junction to enjoy a picnic or to journey deeper into the redwoods to walk amongst some giants on the loop trail, past blossoming wild iris and trillium, and over the iconic arched stone bridge. Renewed and recharged, you’ll bike back to the depot at Fort Bragg with photos and memories to last a lifetime.
