What’s the best way to see the North Bank’s glorious autumn foliage? From a train, of course! The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad will operate its Fall Leaves Special train rides this weekend, departing at noon and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14, and Sunday, Oct. 15. With the leaves just beginning to show off their fall finery and a slight crispness in the air, this train ride will offer you moving views of north Clark County’s most beautiful countryside. This will be a steam engine excursion through a 330-foot solid rock tunnel to the Heisson area with a stop at Moulton Station to visit Yacolt Falls.
All trains depart from the train station in Yacolt. Passengers should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure to allow sufficient time to pick up your tickets and board the train. Tickets for the steam train are $20 for adults, $19 for those aged 60 and better, $15 for children ages five to 11, and $13 for little ones ages two to four. Children under two years old are free.
