Elk River, WV: Buffalo Creek Cruise

Buffalo Creek Cruise

Ride the Buffalo Creek and Gauley Railroad which opened in 1904. The rails serviced the Elk River Coal and Lumber Company until 1965, hauling thousands of tonnes of coal from the mine at Widen, and millions of feet of lumber from the sawmill at Swandale.
You'll pass the Devils Sawmill waterfall, cross the rebuilt Sandfork Bridge and soak in a century of railroad history.
Bring a drink and snack to enjoy at the turnaround area on the bank of Buffalo Creek.

All Explorers are fitted with the 'REX Propulsion System' - custom built electric motors that make the 12 mile round trip journey truly effortless.

Tour duration: 2 hours.
