Take This Ride On A Fall Foliage Train In Maryland

What better way to celebrate the fall season than to enjoy a peaceful ride through beautiful trees with orange and yellow leaves?

This train is located near Frederick, MD, close to Adventure Park USA. The car ride there is very scenic, and the train ride itself takes you through Monocacy Valley. The ride lasts about an hour and 10 minutes long, and costs less than $20. The cool thing about this train is that your ticket also includes admission to their museum as well. It was so interesting to hear about the history of the train and the railroad.

Another cool thing is that the train actually goes backwards!

Don’t mind the chipped nails, lol.

They also have Christmas rides as well! Such a fun and nostalgic way to start off the holidays.

    This sounds SO fun. We don’t get much fall foliage here in Colorado except for a couple short weeks where the Aspens turn golden at certain altitudes. I always miss the stunning colors that last for weeks back east!

      The east coast is so beautiful, and there’s so many things to do here, you should totally take a trip one day.

    This looks like fun! I wish we had something like this in NJ for fall foliage season, but I haven’t heard of anything similar. Maybe I’ll have to take a trip to Maryland next year to try this instead!

      You definitely should! There’s an even bigger train in Cumberland MD that has the most BEAUTIFUL views, I would totally check that one out.

    What a fun little excursion if you’re in MD at the right time! We are planning to move out east so this would be a perfect thing to check out next fall.

      Yes! There’s another train ride too that’s just absolutely beautiful! It’s in Cumberland I believe.

      Yes! This was my first time doing a train ride and I loved it so much I plan on doing one every year in the fall. I’m sure the winter ones are just as gorgeous!

    This sounds like a fun ride! Especially during the fall season when the leaves are changing color.
