Ride Through the Famous Hiwassee Loop

Enjoy a 50-mile roundtrip through the beautiful lower Hiwassee River gorge. This 4.5-hour trip takes you to the top of the famous Hiwassee Loop, where the tracks cross over themselves as they corkscrew up the mountain near Farner, Tennessee. There is no layover on this excursion so you will be on the train for the duration of the trip.

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

NOTE: Pricing varies for Fall Premium dates (October – first two weeks of November)
