Moonlight Escape at Verde Canyon Railroad
Verde Canyon Railroad's Friday Evening Moonlight Escape offers a very unique perspective of the Verde Canyon…under the moon’s glow! On select Friday evenings, 5:30-9:30pm throughout the summer, the red rock canyon walls bounce with the brightness of the full moon, illuminating the Verde Canyon in otherworldly fashion. Rock formations take on the illusion of life and movement as the moon rises. The canyon's resident wildlife is always most active during the crepuscular time of dusk and into the twilight hours of evening. Experience the syncopation of the sunset, moon rise and the clickety clack of steel wheels on the track.
