From Clarkdale, four miles northwest of Cottonwood, vintage FP7 engines pull climate-­controlled cabooses on ­leisurely four-hour narrated round-trips into the splendid canyon north of Cottonwood Pass. Trains leave at 1pm (and sometimes 9am and 2:30pm), but days of the week vary. Check the schedule online and make reservations.

Traveling through roadless wilderness you'll see red-rock cliffs, riparian woodlands, American Indian sites and wildlife (including, from December to April, bald eagles) – views that even surpass that of the Grand Canyon Railway.

The turnaround point is Perkinsville, a remote ranch where scenes from How the West Was Won (1962) were filmed. The train returns the way it came, over bridges and trestles.
