This scenic excursion will take you back in time as it departs from the Wheeler Depot and travels past the former logging camps of Foss and Batterson before returning back to Wheeler. You will get a chance at a stop in Rockaway Beach to explore, for about half an hour before heading back to Garibaldi.

The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, operating since 2002 begins at the Garibaldi Depot. There is also a really old railroad museum at Garibaldi Depot that’s definitely worth checking out. If you don’t want to leave from Garibaldi, you also have the option to board at the station in Rockaway Beach.

Running parallel to Highway 101, riders will get to explore gorgeous rock formations such as this.
