Blue Ridge Scenic Railway
One of the most popular attractions in the Georgia Mountains is a scenic train ride through the Appalachians on the restored Blue Ridge Scenic Railway.These scenic train rides travel along the Toccoa River on the old Marietta and North Georgia Railroad tracks. The tours take travelers from the heart of downtown Blue Ridge to the scenic border towns of McCaysville (on the Georgia side) and Copperhill (on the Tennessee side). Enjoy the scenic trip during the operating season from mid-March through December.
Blue Ridge Scenic Railway in North Georgia
The 13-mile Blue Ridge GA train tour takes about an hour to go from downtown Blue Ridge, through the Chattahoochee National Forest and along the Toccoa River, to its destination at McCaysville and Copperhill.Express trips will not stop here, but passengers on excursions will have a 2-hour layover to explore the twin towns of McCaysville and Copperhill. During the visit, enjoy a waterfront meal or drink on the river, or wander around the antique shops for unique treasures.
When the train whistle blows, it’s time to board the train for the scenic hour-long return trip back to Blue Ridge.
Blue Ridge Railroad History
Railroads played a significant role in the development of the Blue Ridge and McCaysville area between the 1800s and the early 1900s. They determined the routes of local roads, saved an ailing mining industry, contributed to the growth of small towns as resort communities, and made it possible to log the timber in the area.
Today, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway route starts at the historic depot built in 1905 in downtown Blue Ridge. Some of these tracks follow along tracks that were originally laid in 1886! The trains then follow the former Marietta and North Georgia Railroad line along the Toccoa River north to McCaysville, Georgia, and its “sister city” of Copperhill, Tennessee.
The last passenger trains left Blue Ridge in 1951, but the freight trains continued through 1987. A few years later, citizens of Blue Ridge started working on the railroad’s restoration, and the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway started carrying tourists in 1998. In its first year, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway carried 17,000 passengers. Today the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is part of the Patriot Rail & Ports company and has grown to carry 78,000 passengers each year!

What type of trip on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway looks best for your group? Do you prefer the fresh mountain air in the open-air cabins or the climate-controlled closed cabins?
I love to be able to take train rides through the mountains to see sites that cannot be seen by highway and learn the history. When I visit the Blue Ridge Mountains going have to include the family in this activity of the Scenic Railway. Have bookmarked your guide and shared with friends on social media who might be traveling with me.
Hi Jannette, The scenic railway trip does follow unique routes through the scenic North Ga mountains. It’s beautiful any time of year, but most picturesque when the leaves change color in the fall.
Is there any place to rent a handicap scooter or something to take my daughter who cannot walk do to a medical condition that she recently developed this week? We already bought our tickets and she is really looking forward to going ?
Hi Cheryl, There are a handful of places that offer scooter rentals in North Georgia. I am not personally familiar with them, but an internet search for “Blue Ridge wheelchair rentals” brings up a few options including a local place called Scooters and More Factory Outlet. I hope you all can easily find what you need and that you have a wonderful time in North Georgia!
What an interesting Guide I didn’t know much about the GA Mountains whatsoever, but I have always been intrigued with old rail ways and love visiting the mountains near where I live. I loved learning about the history of the railways and the stories behind it! Great article I feel you have taught me a lot!
I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed learning more about the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and some of the history behind the local train lines!
I feel like this article is right down my ally. I literally live behind two trains, and before anyone says anything, I LOVE IT. I think it’s the coolest aspect of living where I do. Besides just joy-rides, people forget how vital trains are to the transfer and shipping of our everyday goods. They see these big, stinky, loud machines and they think the worse!
I think if folks were to take advantage of the scenic routes that many trains offer they would have a different opinion. I know people that go all over the world for train rides like the one you’ve done an article on.
We have what we call the ‘rocky mountaineer’ that goes past our house as well. It’s similar to what you’ve spoken to in your article and crosses some pretty amazing pieces of our country that a lot of people don’t get to see every day.
Thanks for the article! Have a great weekend.
Hi Brooke, Thanks for sharing! It sounds like you live in a wonderful place and I’m happy to hear that the trains add an element of charm that you love!!
It is interesting to learn how railroad development played a significant role in the emergence of the Blue Ridge and McCaysville during the 1800s.
The 13 mile long trip through the Chattahoochee National Forest by the Toccoa River sounds like a great way to enjoy the weather and scenery. Thank you very much for sharing this informative post
Hi Sergej, The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway definitely provides a unique way to sit back and enjoy the views!
I am pleased to have found your website in search. You see with the current Pandemic, we are not allowed to travel from Australia. But I had such a wonderful trip to the USA in 2009 and have had more time online to search and plan our next holiday – bucket list or earlier.
We had the joy of the Alaskan railway and their is something very special and unique about a rail journey through the wilderness. In our 2009 trip we mainly did the Canyon/desert loop from San Francisco to LA as well as Yosemite and New York. So that whole east cost is a mystery.
Seeing this Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is an eye opener. I love the visual of the train through the autumn foliage. We don’t get those vibrant fall/autumn colours for some reason here in Australia. I think $55 for the 4 hour ride through the fall foliage would be ideal. I have added this to my bucket list. You have given me reason to visit the North Georgia region and thank you for opening your special part of the world to all of us.
Hi John, I do hope that everyone gets a chance to see the beauty of the Appalachian mountains in the Fall when some of nature’s most beautiful work is on display. What a nice item to add to your bucket list!
For what it’s worth, visiting your home country of Australia is on my bucket list! 🙂
I have read about a few articles of breathtaking and amazing places in the Georgia Mountains on this website, and I can not seem to get enough. Judging from what I have pictured, based on what I have read and seen in this article, the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway seems to be a one of a kind railway, with amazing sights of nature’s beauty, to have a train tour on. Thanks for this wonderful article about another awesomeness of the Georgia Mountains.
The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is certainly a local gem and is a great way to experience the scenery that is off of the beaten path for typical travelers. I hope you get a chance to check it out for yourself soon!
Train rides are just spectacular especially in an area where there are great visuals. The Blue Ridge scenic railway sounds like a ride filled with fun and relaxation as you view the beautiful scenery in vintage trains. The prices are quite reasonable. It would be nice to take the family out in the summer rides or just take your spouse on a romantic outing on the new years eve midnight train.
This is a great time to take advantage of the the best visuals of the year — the leaves changing color in the Georgia mountains!
Be sure to reserve your tickets as soon as possible as many dates sell out weeks in advance. Enjoy!!
Taking a tour in some areas have been some of the best experience I have had in my life and I wish to explore more places as time goes on. I really like the blue ridge scenic railway and it seems like a great place to take a tour tow with your friends. I have a bucket list and I would like to add this to it and visit it soon. Thanks for the information.
I know that you’ll be happy you made time for this local attraction! It’s fun that the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway has different types of trips to choose from between now and the new year!!
Ive only been here once and need I tell you that it was really an excellent view while moving along. It was really a memory that I would like to renew very soon anytime we went to visit my Hubby’s mom again. This is really a good one and I wold recommend this too to anyone. Thanks for sharing here
Thanks for sharing your feedback. It is a really unique way to enjoy the mountain scenery in North Georgia!
The train ride sounds lovely. The descriptions you give, bring it alive and make me want to travel on it.
I enjoyed the history of the railway in the area. It’s wonderful when the locals get together and bring back something so iconic, makes it even more special.
Sounds like a wonderful trip, especially the autumn, Santa and New Year ones.
Thank you for an enjoyable post. I will share on social media for others to enjoy.
Hi Linda, Thank you so much for visiting Ga Mountains Guide and sharing with your social network!!
For some time now I haven’t been on a train die to the scare i got on my last trip with a train when it started shaking and all. I have seen a couple of post about the Georgia Mountainss and i give credit to nature for some of the pretty thingsii have seen. For those who will be vising, i see this railway experience as one that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. My list just keeps increasing and maybe on one of free periods, i will pay a visit .
Hi Benson, I do hope you are able to visit the north Georgia mountains for a relaxing visit soon (there are lots of other ways to enjoy the area without train rides if you prefer something else!!).
I’ve been on a train ride before and it’s really a lot of fun. I was going up to Seattle from Oregon and the whole experience felt like a blast to the past. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway sounds like it would be way more historical. I would probably go during the fall so that I could see all the colors of the trees. From the picture, it looks like it would be a very relaxing trip.
The area between Seattle and Oregon is beautiful so I’d imagine that was a very nice train trip! The beautiful colors of the fall foliage is definitely a good time to plan for a memorable visit to the Georgia mountains!!
My wife and I were looking for a new experience to do next year, this looks like a great idea. I can’t wait to show her this! I have driven through the Appalachians many times, since I have family in Ohio and live in Texas, so I know how beautiful it is up there. We typically take vacations in the summer, though, with the kids out of school. How hot does it get during that time? I would think it would be a little cooler in the mountains even with it being summertime. Thank you for the help!
Hi Travis, It can get quite hot in the summer even in the north Georgia mountains — it’s not uncommon to see summertime temperatures in the 90’s with high humidity levels as well.
As a keen railway traveller I can appreciate this beautiful railway line. To travel in style seems to be a opportunity not to be missed, and at reasonable price as well. Some people say that the railway was the best invention that the British have to the world, and looking through the article, you can see why. I always appreciate a railway car that had food and drink associated with them, as I believe it makes it more authentic. When I have time it is most certainly a railway I would like to ride on and to hear the train whistle.
Hi Antonio, You might really enjoy the New Year’s Eve train ride which includes a little more than the standard train rides. I hope you get a chance to check it out soon!
WOW! My mother has wanted to go to view family home sites and I can’t wait to spring this on her. Your information is endless and so thorough that I need nothing more as there are no questions. The scenery on your sight is beautiful and compels one the wanting to experience it. I mean you give all the why’s, when’s, and where’s and how’s that one could possibly imagine for the need to know. I thank you and commend you on this article. Can’t wait to go!
Wonderful Dorri! I hope that you and your mother have a fantastic trip to the Georgia Mountains and on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway!
Great and wonderful article on Blue Ridge Scenic Railway,the adventure experienced in travelling by train is very great,the acceptance of the riders to go along with snacks and drinks but no alcohol,this caution and prevention measure on ground gives me more confidence in it, I have to consider safety first before any other considerations,its always a splendid tour on Blue Ridge Scenic Railway,thanks for sharing this awesome post.
The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is a fun experience for kids and adults alike! A really great trip that combines beautiful scenery with a bit of adventure on a historic train route!
Wow, it been a while I read about an interesting trip like this, I’ve always wanted a cool and scenic trip like this for me and my dad, since he retired, I think he retired the school of fun too, lol, Blue Ridge Scenic Railway trip will be ta perfect trip to him to embark on, at least to get out of his chair.
The history of the place is really interesting, the features of the place are attractive and sight suiting too, and most of all, thanks foe listing the necessities for the trip. I’ll book for the trip as soon as I notify my dad and my girlfriend and I know they’ll love it. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jones, I’m glad to hear that you found this interesting. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful trip!
I love this part of the country.
My wife always plans the vacations and I’m trying find one for us and surprise her.
We’ve discussed Savannah before and I know she’d want to go there
Is this about a 5-6 hour drive to Savannah?
I’m just wondering if this would be a feasible option for us.
Hi, that is a sweet idea to surprise your wife with a trip! The drive from Blue Ridge to Savannah can be as quick as just over 5 hours (for the fastest route), or you can take your time on some of the scenic roads if you’re okay with a trip that is a little longer. There are some really beautiful roads in the Georgia mountains so I would recommend that your route goes through Suches and Dahlonega or includes part of the Russell-Brasstown National Scenic Byway.
I know that the United States is beautiful, but this is utterly stunning. My partner and I are planning a trip early November, as I would love to experience the colours of ‘Fall’. I see that the Fall trips run until November the 11th, so we would still be in time. This looks absolutely perfect.
As I will book Premier Class, could you tell me if I am allowed to bring a small bottle of champagne on board to celebrate our anniversary?
Would it be worth staying in Copperhill for the night (if possible) and returning the next day?
Hi Renee, Unfortunately there is no alcohol allowed on the train, but you are allowed to take a small cooler. Perhaps some non-alcholic sparkling cider could be enjoyed on the train and you can enjoy champagne at a restaurant on the river during your layover… or once you are back in Blue Ridge.
There is not an option to stay overnight and return the next day, as all trips are one day out and back. But fortunately, it is a relatively short drive between Blue Ridge and Copperhill so you could easily drive to the bordertowns if you’d like to stay there overnight.
Personally, I enjoy renting a cabin in the mountains for special occasions like anniversaries. They book up fast on Fall weekends so go ahead and start your search now to get one with great views, fireplace, and a hot tub!
Hi! This is a great option when deciding were to spend a nice afternoon with all the family. The kids enjoy train rides and I enjoy taking pictures so this is a cool combination. I was looking at the interiors and they’re stylish, I really like them. It’s nice to have different coach alternatives. Thanks for this review.
I agree – it’s nice that there are a few different ways to enjoy the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway including the open air cars!
hai alyce thank you for the share.
Nice blog article with the beautiful scenic forest, blue sky, and the historic train that go through the Georgia mountains. Good picture which looks like it would make for a perfect outing in the Blue Ridge / Appalachian mountains. The layover in the twin cities on the border looks really neat.
Thanks again for the information!
You are most welcome Selina – I hope you get a chance to take this trip soon!
Great and very informative article about the blue ridge scenic railway. Appalachian mountains have always been one of the places I would like to see. These prices for railway trips sounds reasonable. Actually cheaper than I never thought. The new year´s eve midnight trip sounds very interesting but Santa Claus I pass because as a Finnish man I need to promote Finnish Santa Claus living in Rovaniemi, Lappland, lol. Jokes aside, thanks for a great article, I will take a further look at your website, maybe I found even more of my favorite or dream places to travel in.
-Kind regards Jesse
Haha, I think I need to hear more about this Finnish Santa Claus… You are most welcome to visit at any time (with or without the opporunity to see the Santa from the North Pole). 😉
Hi Alyce, Wow, I have to thank you for sharing this post about the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. As I was reading about this incredible train ride through the Georgia Mountains, many questions popped up in my mind but you answered all of them by the end of the post. I was quite impressed with the reasonable ticket prices for this breathtaking experience, and the fact that they offer scenic tours throughout the year.
My husband and I are also from West Virginia but we’ve lived in South Carolina for many years and have greatly enjoyed the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains through Asheville, North Carolina. Thanks again for sharing this valuable information for those of us who love the mountains and also love trains as well!
Hi Sue! It’s great that even though you’ve left the “almost heaven” home of West Virginia, that you have still found ways to enjoy the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! Asheville is a wonderful mountain city. I hope you are able to visit the Georgia mountains too, as they are beautiful part of the Appalachians too!
Hello; interesting post. For me, it will not matter where a train runs. I am always captivated by the thought of a Train ride. I am willing to go wherever it takes me. Reading that the Toccoa River forms a part of this would be an added excitement for me.
“Waterfront meal or drink” suggests that the Train carries Tourists. McCaysville Georgia and Copperhill Tennessee sound like the Toccoa River enhances the scenery between both States I hope I am right in my belief.
Thanks for your posts I enjoyed reading.
The train is definitely for tourists, but you are also welcome to drive into the McCaysville / Copperhill area and find a waterfront place to eat without the train ride too. If you choose to drive instead of take the train, you’ll find that the towns are much more quiet when the train has left town with the tourists!
The image alone would have been a temptation for me. I love the colors of the trees in the fall; which I enjoyed very much in Italy, UK, and Canada. Unfortunately I do not travel anymore but envy the train ride; I was surprise to see winter rides. Are their elevated views. what is the highest point on the ride? Thanks for sharing.
The train route travels next to the river, so it’s mostly nestled into the hills (instead of up near the hill tops) on this stretch of track. There are certainly some areas with long views of the mountains though, and it’s all quite beautiful!
You know looking at this topic makes me think I might book a trip with the Blueridge railway. I also got to read the history of the area itself. I think it’s great and someday I might just book a trip for a few friends with that 15% discount you have shown here Thanks for the information
Taking in the sights with a group of 15 or more friends sounds like an awesome way to spend the day!
I feel so certain that this is a going to be a very beautiful experience for me. I love going on train rides and looking at the fact that this one is even scenic, I feel like I should give it a try. I like the good price there and I can even get good discounts for going in the ride. That’s very awesome. Thanks for the full details here. I’ll talk to my friends about this trip. Maybe this new years eve we can visit the blue ridge scenic railway.
That sounds amazing – what a fun way to bring in the new year!!
An excellent and in-depth article on a historic place to visit in Georgia, thank you! I love that you included some excellent bargain places you can visit on the Railway for those of us on a very tight budget. Beautiful pictures as well. I never really pictured Georgia as having mountains, probably because I’m from Montana, but the colors in your first picture with the trees is absolutely gorgeous and I really need to visit there. I’m not too far in Louisiana so this was an informative article for me, thank you again!
Georgia has a lot of different regions including coastal and plains, but my favorite is definitely the mountains!
I can remember the first time i experienced this, i and my girlfriend got there an hour early and stood around for half an hour before boarding, but we were the third group in line and picked seats on the water side on the way there to make sure we got to see it. There is more commentary from the guides on the way there too. The area is small and you can wander it fairly quickly, but our train was full so it was pretty crowded but it was a fun moment to remember.
What a nice memory of a beautiful trip!
This is really amazing. I love going on train rides since I was a girl and going on this one would really be lovely. I love the detailed description given here and considering the wonderful experience one would have, the prices are really worth it. I would love to visit soon. Thanks for sharing this nice information
The Georgia mountain towns are absolutely beautiful and traveling between them by train is a great way to allow everyone in your party to experience the beauty (without being concerned about driving or navigation)!
I have quite a lot of things about the blue ridge scenic railways a lot and most people that have explored this railway have a lot of positive things to talk about their exploration here. I like the way you have broken down into precise information how germane this railways has been like in this area and the people that take it often. I like the scenic experiences and I will surely make use of this trail some days soon for exploration purposes. Thanks
I hope you have a fantastic trip!
I have been hearing so much about the Georgia mountain and all reports have been a wonderful one, and that is why I am making my own research and stumbling upon this post gives me extra conviction that the Georgia mountain is indeed a place worth visiting. I would gladly recommend this place for anyone. Thanks for this post.
The Appalachian mountains are a beautiful place at any time of year, but they really come to life during these Autumn months with peak fall foliage colors. I hope you have a great trip to the Georgia mountains!!
