What can I see along the Verde Valley Railroad?

This trip is the ideal way to end an otherwise adventure packed, go-go-go vacation. Once onboard, head outside to listen to the gentle chugging of the train as you wind your way through some of Arizona’s most beautiful country.

Where is the railroad?

The depot is located at 300 North Broadway, in Clarkdale, Arizona, about an hour and 15 minutes from Prescott. To get there, head out the backside of Prescott, down 89A.

Then turn left onto Broadway and you will see it on the left.

When is it open?

The train is open at various times year-round (the itinerary changes slightly based on season). Visit for a complete schedule of events, from the Grape Train Escapes in summer to The Christmas Express in winter.

How much does it cost?
