All aboard near Crater Lake

by 30 Mile Admin

What a great way to spend a summer Sunday, and it’s less than an hour south of Crater Lake National Park!  Klamath & Western is a group of wonderful volunteers who offer FREE train rides each Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Memorial Day to Labor Day.  The organization accepts donations to help with maintenance and also sells wonderful burgers for lunch.  You’re welcome to take more than one half-hour ride, waiting your turn each time on shady benches.  On our visit yesterday, there were visitors from all over the country and a family from Belgium.  When we boarded the train, passengers ranged from my 91 year old mother-in-law to a youngster about 2 riding on his mom’s lap.   The gentle sloped sidewalk from the parking lot to the “depot” is handicap-accessible with assistance, and a lady who arrived in a wheelchair enjoyed a ride just ahead of us.  Check this website’s Attractions page for another photo and a map.
