AAA Editor Notes

Skunk Train departs from the Skunk Depot on Laurel St., w. off SR 1. The 7-mile, 1-hour round trip journey travels along the Pudding Creek Estuary, where sightings of egrets, blue herons and ospreys are common. The train's unusual name is derived from the smelly gas engines of the 1920s; while the vintage equipment no longer uses bad-smelling fuel, the name has continued. Christmas trains run in December; phone for details. A second Skunk Train operates from Willits.
Fare $25; $15 (ages 2-12); $10 (ages 0-2). An additional $10 fee is charged for dogs. Reservations are recommended.
Hours: Trips depart daily from Fort Bragg at 11 and 1 (also at 3 during holiday periods), mid-June through early Oct. Trains depart at 11 and 1 on a reduced schedule thereafter until late Dec.; phone for schedule details.
