Mendocino County: Skunk Train Pudding Creek Train Ride

1. Mendocino County: Skunk Train Pudding Creek Train Ride

Take in the beautiful and relaxing scenery on this 7-mile roundtrip journey, which departs the Depot in downtown Fort Bragg year-round. Travel along the Pudding Creek Estuary, home to abundant wildlife and natural beauty. Ride through ancient redwoods to the tranquil setting of Glen Blair. The historic tracks were some of the first to be laid down by the California Western Railroad in 1885, and they've been carrying passengers on them ever since. The original Skunk Train began as a logging route back in 1885, when it transported families and workers to and from the numerous logging camps in the area. The train received its now-famous nickname, the "Skunk Train" back in 1925 when motorcars were introduced that ran on gasoline and which had a pot-bellied stove burning crude oil to keep the passengers warm. Locals said that just like skunks "You could smell them before you could see them". Don't worry, the days of the skunk smell are long gone. Enjoy free admission the Model Railroad museum, included in the ticket price. See logging history brought to life on an incredible model railroad that has over 1,300 feet of track. View the mill, logging camp, town bridges, trestles, and much more. The museum is located just west of Skunk Train Depot in Fort Bragg.

What people are saying about Mendocino

We had a great time. However, we took the wrong path with about 15 other travelers and missed the train to go back to the station. We had to wait about 2 hours for the next train to come. It messed up our plans for the rest of the afternoon. They need to have a conductor at the end of the wood ramp pointing where the path is so people don't get lost. Other wise I would be able to mark 5 stars:(
