You will board the train in Blue Ridge, GA, and travel to the sister cities of McCaysville, GA / Copperhill, TN. We offer a 4-Hour Excursion and a 2-Hour Express; both travel the same 26-mile roundtrip journey through the countryside and along the Toccoa River.

4-Hour Excursions begin with a 1-hour train ride through the countryside before arriving in the sister cities of McCaysville, GA / Copperhill, TN. You will then have a 2-hour layover where you can enjoy lunch or explorer the two towns. After the layover, you will board the train and relax on the 1-hour return trip back to Blue Ridge, Ga.

2-Hour Express travels the same roundtrip journey, but there is no layover in the sister cities of McCaysville, GA / Copperhill, TN.

Concession Car

All patrons have access to the concession car located in the middle of the train for the duration of the ride. Cold/hot beverages, snacks, candy, etc, are available for purchase. You are allowed to bring snacks and non-alcoholic drinks aboard.
