Ride a steam train OR take a walk through a beautiful redwood forest! This is the location of the photo shoot for the album cover of John Denver’s “All Aboard” album; and a really cool way to view a California coastal redwood forest (Hint #1 – if some in your vehicle wish to walk through the forest, park at the Roaring Camp parking lot and go together to the train depot. The State Park visitor’s center and the Redwood Grove Loop Trail is right there next to the train depot). (Hint #2 – plan to arrive EARLY. Allow extra time to navigate rural roads and extra time to pick up your ticket before the train departs at 11:00 – it is recommended to arrive one hour early – this will give you plenty of time to walk to the train depot, pick up your tickets and visit the restroom before your train ride).

"It was a heavenly evening of beautiful music, a shining tribute to John Denver, one of which I believe Denver himself would salute."...

"The physical resemblance is amazing: the voice is unbelievable. If John Denver were alive today, he'd want to hear his songs performed by Jim Curry."
