Railbikes on the Noyo
Discover a new side of the Redwood Route aboard our custom-built, two-person electric railbikes.
Discover a new side of the Redwood Route aboard our new, longer Railbike experience.
Electric-powered and virtually silent, our custom-built, patent pending, two-person railbikes will take you breezing along the world-famous Redwood Route.
This new excursion will take you 25 miles far off the beaten path along the meandering Noyo River and deep into old-growth redwood groves, on a section of track now reserved exclusively for our railbikes.
Begin the day at our Sherwood Road property with a scenic hike down through the redwoods to the Noyo River and the east end of Tunnel #1. You’ll get acquainted with your bikes and guides, and set off – trips will be staggered by a few minutes so that you can enjoy the solitude of the route as you make your way 11 miles inland along the tranquil river. You’ll pass South Fork, Ranch, Redwood Lodge, Grove, and other historic stops, crossing over 12 wooden trestle bridges that offer stunning views of the river below. Pull into Camp Noyo and take an hour break, with a picnic and refreshments offered complimentary for your enjoyment. Take a swim in the river, relax, or stroll among the redwoods before setting off home.
This is a strenuous and lengthy trip, requiring excellent mobility to descend to the railbikes from Sherwood Road. During the winter months this trip can become quite chilly, and we recommend dressing appropriately and with layers.
For those looking for a shorter, less formidable trip, we recommend our Pudding Creek excursion, departing from the Fort Bragg depot.
