We took the 4-hour round trip from Willits. It was a Monday and there were only nine people taking the train that day. This was a great way to see all the huge redwood trees and learn some history of logging in the area. Not a real scenic trip because the train goes through the dense forest. But it was a fun tour and I would recommend it.

I took my guy on the Skunk Train as a surprise birthday gift. We had so much fun and it was such a beautiful and informative tour. He was so happy and thankful and the staff made him feel so special on his birthday. Would def recommend the Skunk Train to everyone!

Took the train on a rainy morning to see the redwoods. We love trains so it was very enjoyable to see all the trees and hear the conductor give us all the info along the way. Unfortunately the tunnel to Willits is shut down for repairs so we only rode 30 min. and then 30 min back to the train station. They offer snacks for purchase on the train too.

Took the 4 hour round trip from Willits. Really enjoyed the open air car. Made for good photo ops. The train singer was enjoyable.

We took the 4 hour round trip ride that leaves out of Willets. The train was not crowded, could have been the time of year and that it was a weekday. Everyone was very friendly and polite. Dogs are allowed on the train. Entertainment was a nice young man with a guitar that sang every railroad song you could think of. He was an awesome entertainer. Once you get into the Noyo forest they had a nice campfire and the same musician played some flute music for the 45 minute lunch (you bring your own) and it left time for a nice hike along the river in the Redwoods. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole journey. There was a snack bar on the train that served drinks, both alcoholic and soda's and had a few snacks, popcorn candy etc.
