Haunted Train Rides in the U.S.

September 01, 2022

What are some non-haunted train rides in the U.S. I can take this fall?

Not everyone is into the frights of the spooky season, and we totally get it. If you’re more of a fall foliage fan than fearless ghost hunter, you’ll be delighted to learn about these 18 epic train rides across America that, while beautiful all year long, are especially lovely in the fall months. One of our favorite autumn train rides is the one offered at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Along this scenic three-and-a-half-hour train ride, you’ll journey straight through the Cuyahoga River Valley, along the eponymous river and past gorgeous wetlands (yes — Ohio has wetlands!). This excursion offers an unrivaled experience of one of the country’s finest and overlooked national parks that’s sure to give passengers a newfound appreciation for the Midwest. You’ll find other lovely fall foliage train rides aboard the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia, the Mount Washington Cog Railway in New Hampshire, the Branson Scenic Railroad in Missouri, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in New Mexico, the Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway in Colorado, and the Grand Canyon Railway in Arizona.
