Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

Blue Ridge Scenic RailwayEnjoy a train ride alongside the beautiful Toccoa River from Blue Ridge to McCaysville. Board the train in historic Blue Ridge. The view changes with the seasons, wildflowers and mountain laurel in the spring, rhododendron in the summer, gorgeous foliage in the fall and a ride with Santa and his elves for Christmas.

The Scenic Railway departs from the old depot in downtown Blue Ridge. Your destination is downtown McCaysville, Georgia. Walk across the “Blue Line” on the street and you’re in Copperhill, Tennessee! The rail adventure is a 3 1/2 hour 26 mile round trip, with a 1 1/2 hour layover to explore.

The train runs from March through December, on weekends until June 13th, then daily through July. In the peak month of October, trips are daily beginning on October 3rd. For more information, call 1-800-934-1898 or see
