Copperhill Train Ride

The leaves on the trees in the forest were starting to turn yellow, orange, and red. The fall colors were beautiful and breathtaking. The train ride through the forest was a wonderful way to see the changing leaves.

Take an extended day trip excursion through the lower Hiwassee River Gorge, over the Hiwassee Loop, and onto the joint cities of Copperhill, Tennessee, and McCaysville, GA.  Total 94-mile round trip.  Have lunch on your own during the 90-minute layover before returning. Departure time is 9:00 A.M. and return is generally around 5:30 P.M.

The “Copperhill” route is the same as for “Loop” trips, but after traversing the river gorge and negotiating the spiral near Farner, the train continues a longer distance through Turtletown and Ducktown to the former mining town of Copperhill.

Hiwassee Loop trips are on Fridays and Sundays. Copperhill Special trips are on Saturdays.

The railroad over which Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum trains travel on its Hiwassee River Rail Adventures was formerly part of the Louisville and Nashville (L&N) Railroad’s Atlanta Division stretching between Etowah, Tennessee and Marietta, Georgia. Learn more
