On summer evenings, it’s not just the stars that come out to play in Verde Canyon. On select Saturday evenings, the train departs the depot at 5:30 p.m.. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues. The train reaches the turn-around point of Perkinsville amid a scandalous sunset. The return trip offers a serene glimpse into the nocturnal wildlife set against a dazzling canvas of celestial bodies. As the sun slips behind distant mountains, cool air sweeps through the Canyon signaling the resident wildlife to begin their nightly rounds. The Canyon comes alive with the luminous glow of moon-kissed skies on Verde Canyon Railroad’s popular Saturday Starlight Tours.
See Mother Nature’s personal fireworks show during Dark Skies Constellation Ride on September 7th. The stars of the Verde Valley steal the show on this celebratory weekend ride.Reserve »
