Running between McEwen and the historic mining town of Sumpter, it’s a guarantee that the whole family will enjoy this relaxing trip back in time without having to leave the comfort of the present.
The Sumpter Valley Railroad is open weekends and major holidays, Memorial Day Weekend through the last weekend in September. Round trips take just over two hours, including a layover in either McEwen or Sumpter. There are also many special events throughout the season, ranging from train robberies to photo specials.
