October is the best time in Oregon to enjoy peak fall colors and go out to take gorgeous fall photos. One of our favorite ways to take in the gorgeous yellows, reds and oranges of Oregon’s fall foliage is by train. Mount Hood Railroad and Sumpter Valley Railroad both offer fall train rides in October, and they’re the perfect way to get out and experience autumn in Oregon with friends and family.
Sumpter Valley Railroad Excursions 2021
Sumpter Valley Railroad has a limited number of train excursions available on weekends in October. If you want to take photos of beautiful fall foliage, consider going on Fall Foliage weekend on October 22nd, or on the Fall Photo Trains on October 23rd, and 24th.

Mount Hood Railroad offers many fall train excursions through October 31st. The Hood River Valley excursion lasts 1.5 hours and has some pretty views. On this gorgeous fall train ride, you’ll leave the valley floor and cross the lower main fork of the Hood River, then ride along 3 miles of the river. Throughout the ride, you’ll get some “peek-a-boo” views of Mount Hood and see vibrant fall foliage.
