The Skunk Train
save place
All Aboard and into the Woods!
The Skunk Train (formally the California Western Railroad) dates to the 1880s and cruises between Fort Bragg and Willits, over trestles, through tunnels, and past some amazingly old Redwoods. It is indeed a "tourist attraction" but also a glorious way to travel through beautiful Northern California forests. During Mendocino's major culinary events--the Beer, Wine & Mushroom Festival in November and the Crab, Wine & Beer Days in January--ride a special express to hunt for for mushrooms with a mycologist or enjoy a Crab Louie with local wines.
