Ride The Rails In A Historic Trolley Car On The Craggy Mountain Line In North Carolina
Fortunately for visitors and residents alike, North Carolina has a number of ways to step back in time when it comes to riding the rails in the Tar Heel State. But there’s only one place you can take a ride in a historic street car used on the Asheville trolley line and that’s at Craggy Mountain Line just north of Asheville near Woodfin.
