Felton Beach Train at Roaring Camp Railroad
 

Felton Beach Train or Steam Train narrow-gauge excursions to Bear Mountain are an incredible experience. Perfect relief for Silicon Valley burnout, Roaring Camp's steam engines date from 1890 and are among the oldest and most authentically preserved narrow-gauge steam engines.

Travel over trestles, through towering redwood groves and up a winding narrow-gauge grade to the summit of Bear Mountain where you can exit the train to stand in a redwood grove. Felton is an unincorporated Santa Cruz County community located only a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and the City of Santa Cruz. The beach train is one of two excursions offered at Roaring Camp. See images of the beach train destination at the Santa Cruz Board Walk, an historic, on-the-beach amusement park that dates to the early 1900s.

 

 

Adjacent to Roaring Camp is Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park which features miles of trails through a forest that looks much the same as it did 200 years ago. The tallest tree in the park is about 285 feet tall, and about 16 feet wide. The park has a nature center, bookstore and main park area containing about 1,750 acres of old-growth redwoods.
