Fall Foliage Train Tour
Hocking Valley Scenic Railway
Fall Foliage Tour
Friday, October 5
Meet at CRC| 3222 North High St.
Watch the vivid colors of autumn pass by you while you take a train ride along the historic Hocking River Valley. Take in the scenery from one of our enclosed coaches or one of our open-air cars. Trains depart each Thursday and Friday from the Nelsonville Depot at 1:00 p.m. and last approximately 2 hours.
Along the way, you'll pass by the remains of Hocking Canal Lock No. 19 and Haydenville, Ohio's last company town. You'll also get a glimpse of the current industry in the Valley including gravel mining operations and a lumber facility. On-board narration will provide a history of the area and railroad.
You may bring soft drinks and food aboard. No restrooms on the train (available in the depot). There is a wheelchair lift available at the depot as needed.
A CRC van will be available to transport members. Please RSVP by September 20. Tickets cost $15 for Seniors and $17 for adults.
The group will gather at CRC at 11:00am and leave no later than 11:15am. The depot requests that groups arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure. Attendees will pack picnic lunches to enjoy on the train or after the trip.
