Verde Canyon Railroad

The Verde Canyon Railroad takes you on a trip through Southwest regions rich with indigenous flora and fauna throughout the Verde Valley. Asphalt, concrete and tension drift away as you cruise from Clarkdale to Perkinsville at a smooth 12 miles per hour.

Along the journey, the vintage train cars wind their way through Arizona wilderness and your senses come alive. You hear the wheels echo off the canyon walls, feel the gentle wind kiss your cheek, taste Arizona’s special blend of fresh air or spy a majestic Bald Eagle effortlessly floating on a breeze.

The train passes towering crimson pinnacles, ancient Indian ruins, fortified trestles, a monocline fault and a manmade 680-foot tunnel on a four-hour rail journey from the old mining town of Clarkdale to the Perkinsville ghost ranch and back.

As you cruise, enjoy deliciously prepared meals paired with wine made locally at some of Arizona's most renowned vineyards.
