Your camera won’t stop clicking during hour-long, narrow-gauge rides into history aboard rail cars pulled by steam locomotives that once hauled massive logs out of what is now the Sierra National Forest.
The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad 4-mile excursions include a stop to see the rare Shay locomotives up close. It’s a not-to-be-forgotten activity for families visiting Yosemite National Park, whose south entrance is just four miles away on Highway 41. Scenic picnic grounds, exhibits and hiking trails round out a visit.
