Mudball Express


Spring in the Secret Valley is a magical experience, as the deep forests come back to life. Join us this season as we paint the line with the brilliant colors of native wildflowers.

Passengers will be encouraged to toss ecologically correct mudballs – yes, real mudballs, laden with native wildflower seeds – from the train. Riders, ages 6 years and up, will learn about both local histories as the train runs through the scenic landscape rich with America’s iron-industry heritage and about environmental restoration - maintaining and restoring the Earth.

The nearly two-hour journey will provide many rewards but none greater than children and families working directly with Mother Nature, and each other, to keep a natural balance alive and well.

Trains depart at the following time:
Saturday, April 21 at 2:30 & 6 p.m.
Sunday, April 22 at 11 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.
