We rode this train round trip from Sumpter to McEwen and back to Sumpter. We bought the family pass, so it was a pretty good deal. The two train stations are really nice and restored beautifully. The train itself is just beautiful, with a variety...More

The Sumpter area is a very interesting trip into when ecological concerns didn't exist and the valley is a strong testament to that. Piles of stones line the area where the old dredge tore up the entire countryside in search for gold. The Sumpter Valley...More
