Ride the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

Event Details

Step back in time as you and your family enjoy a four-hour railway excursion along the beautiful Toccoa River from Blue Ridge to McCaysville. Choose an authentic indoor car, open rail car or Premier Class. Your destination is the mountain town of McCaysville, Georgia, sister city to Copperhill, Tennessee. During your two-hour layover, have lunch and take a walk across the “Blue Line” on the street and you’re in Tennessee! You can actually stand in two states at once if you have one foot on the Georgia side and the other on the Tennessee side! 

The rail adventure is a two-hour, 26-mile round trip, with a two-hour layover to explore. The train runs from March through December. Visit their website Blue Ridge Scenic Railway for an updated schedule of trips and events.
