Roaring Camp Railroads
25 mi. / 32 min. from the Bristol Hotel
All aboard!! Step back in time for an old-fashioned 1880’s steam train ride winding through the redwood forests of Bear Mountain while listening to a conductor narrate the history of Roaring Camp, the railroad and the forest. Or climb aboard a historic locomotive departing from the Santa Cruz Mountains that will take you through Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, along the beautiful San Lorenzo River Gorge, over a 1909 steel truss bridge and through a 19th century tunnel before pulling into the depot at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
