Autumn excursions run south from Walkersville, through the Walkersville Community Park, and past Fountain Rock, site of a 100-year old lime kiln. The ride continues south through the woods, and then out into picturesque Maryland farm country past Barricks Farm, established in the early 1820's. On a clear day you can view the Catoctin Mountains west of Frederick. Before returning to the Walkerville Station you will cross the beautiful Monocacy River on the recently reconstructed railroad bridge. The view is impressive and will be the highlight of your trip.
The ride is leisurely, with speeds limited to ten miles per hour. Passengers may choose to ride in our open-air excursion car, remodeled passenger coaches, or the caboose. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and excursions last 1 hour and 10 minutes and are held rain or shine!
