Things To Do

Overview

Stop. Look. Listen. Not for the train ... it doesn't whistle along this old, abandoned, 21-mile railroad anymore. Listen to the rustling wind, birds and trickling streams. Stop at Banks. Stop at Manning. Stop at Buxton. Stop at Stub Stewart. Stop at Tophill, Beaver Creek, or Vernonia. Stop at any of these trailheads and get on this trail to walk, bicycle, clop along on your horse or push the stroller. Look at the old trestles and gorgeous wildflowers, animals and trees. Hop on board. 21 miles of adventure await. There's a ticket with your name on it.

The trail is open to all non-motorized users ... horse, bicycle, and walkers/hikers.
