This afternoon, we will experience a 50-mile round trip train ride on the Tennessee Valley Railroad Hiwassee Loop, up the beautiful lower Hiwassee River gorge. This 4-hour trip will take you to the top of the famous “Hiwassee Loop” where the tracks cross over themselves as they corkscrew up the mountain near Farner, Tennessee. Following the train ride, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the area’s best restaurants! (B, BL, D)
