The Verde Canyon Railroad features an abundance of flora, fauna, rugged rock faces and spectacular canyon vistas accessible only by rail via luxurious coaches and open-air cars pulled by vintage locomotives. From Clarkdale to Perkinsville and back, enjoy the rippling green waters of the Verde River, towering red rock canyon walls and brilliant azure skies. Cactus and agave adorn the cliff sides, while graceful cottonwoods and sycamores canopy the water. Ancient Sinagua ruins stand sentinel over the tracks. Ride includes historic trestles, bridges and a 680-foot tunnel that envelopes the train in total darkness before returning to glorious Arizona sunshine. Inspired by nature, conducted by experts, Verde Canyon Railroad travels the rare ribbon where high desert meets riparian wonderland.
