Andrews Valley Rail Tours – RailBike Ride

A Breathtaking RailBike Ride

Enjoy a 10-mile round trip through the natural beauty and spectacular views of the Appalachian Mountains aboard North Carolina’s First RailBike Tour. Be sure to bring your camera, and have it ready for the trip to the Historic Valley River Tunnel. Take in the views from our beautiful valley that offers you the opportunity to experience beautiful mountains, forests, and abundant wildlife. You’ll see crystal-clear mountain rivers and streams as you cross Historic open-deck railroad bridges on your trip to the tunnel. Once there you’ll have about 1/2 hour to check out the tunnel (which was hand carved by workers from Southern Railway in 1894) and the surrounding area. Please take care on your stroll as the terrain can get steep and rocky.
