Embark on a Holiday Train Ride

Book your tickets today and embark on a Christmas adventure. All aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad! The train begins at the railroad depot in Clarkdale and departs every Saturday and Sunday from December 1 – 23, at 5:30 and 7:00 P.M. Before the train boards, you are invited to explore a village of 10 tiny houses in a town square. Once on the train boards and takes off, the one-hour round-trip adventure begins. 


Hike and Bike the Red Rock Country Trails

November in Red Rock Country is still moderately warm, so when the weather permits a day outdoors is ideal. There’s no shortage of hiking and biking trails in Red Rock, but before you set out for a day of excursion, read up on a few of our personal favorites.

Brins Mesa Trail is a popular one. It’s on the outskirts of Sedona, making it easy to get to. From the top of the trail, you can look out at rock formation like Chimney Rock and Wilson Mountain.
