Trip Description

Welcome! A great family adventure on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway starts at the historic depot, built in 1905, in downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia. This charming mountain village is nestled in the lush Chattahoochee National Forest and is known for it's pleasant and unique shopping with friendly folks and an old-time atmosphere.

 

Our regularly schedule trips are 26 miles roundtrip (4 hours ) winding along the beautiful Toccoa River in your choice of vintage, climate controlled rail cars or open-air rail cars or even our closed coach Premeir car for passengers over the age of 18, arriving in the quaint sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.

 

Passengers have a 2 hour layover in McCaysville/Copperhill; plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, or walk across the old bridge in town to view the river. 

Cars are assigned- seats are not. Seats are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Changing sides on return trip is madatory, so everyone gets a chance to seat on river side.

 

Special Trains are usually shorter trips, see below for details on Harvest Festival and our Santa Trains.
