Craggy Mountain Line Train Rides

Craggy Mountain Line Train Rides

Ride the rails just 5 miles north of downtown Asheville on the historic Craggy Mountain Line. The 3.5-mile section of railroad in the small town of Woodfin (near Weaverville) has been preserved by a hard-working group of volunteers. This small non-profit has acquired and restored historic train cars and trolleys for you to enjoy. Future plans for this railroad museum include a regular train excursion, more equipment, depot, and much more. (Photo above is their festive holiday ride.)

During December, take the Jingle Bell Trolley Train Ride on Saturdays. The train leaves on the hour. After the 30-minute ride, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies along with visiting Santa and Mrs Claus. It's fun for all ages.

They also offer special charter trolley trains on other days for groups. It's a great idea for celebrating birthdays or other occasions with friends and family.
