|Ride the Rails into the Smokies, Oct. 19
Travel through the mountains by train - the best way to view the spectacular Nantahala Gorge - and be touched by the nostalgia of old-time rail. Go by chartered coach to Dillsboro, NC, and enjoy some time to explore the town and have a family style lunch at the Jarrett House before driving on to Bryson City. Take a quick look at the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum, featuring such classics as the 1934 Blue Comet Passenger set and the more recent Joshua Lionel Cowen Challenger steam locomotives, and board the train for a round trip excursion through the gorge. See highlights including the Horseshoe Curve, Fontana Lake Trestle, Little Tennessee River and an hour to explore the Nantahala Outdoor Center. Your naturalist guide will note the flora and fauna to enhance your enjoyment of autumn’s splendor. Trip goes, rain or shine. Box supper en route home is included. No refunds. Fee includes transportation, train ride, lunch, museum admission, supper and naturalist guide. We regret this trip is not handicapped accessible.
