Take a scenic ride through the forests of North Carolina on board the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. The train departs from Bryson City, NC and winds through the small towns, rushing rivers and serene Smoky Mountains. It's a unique way to experience the region and take in it's beauty.

Don't miss the train! The trip I especially like is the one going into The Nantahala River! The Polar Express is magical during the holidays!

From the Bunny Hopper Express to the Carolina Shine Experience, to the All Adult First Class Experience, to the Polar Express. There is a seasonal ride for everyone to enjoy!
