A ride on Verde Canyon Railroad's historic and scenic route from Clarkdale to the ghost ranch of Perkinsville deep within Arizona's other grand canyon is an unforgettable experience. Home to America's national symbol, the majestic bald eagle, Verde Canyon is accessible only by rail.
The route is nestled between two national forests and adjacent to a designated wilderness area. This unique geological wonderland features rugged, crimson high desert rock faces and spectacular panoramic views. Expert narration and guides leave passengers with a sense of history, archaeology, geology, wildlife, and the Indian lore of the Verde Canyon.
Verde Canyon Railroad, nestled in the heart of the
expansive Verde Valley, is ideally located above the heat of the desert and below the cold of Arizona's high country. The train provides an easy and fun way to experience 'Arizona's longest-running nature show.'
