West Virginia - Cheat Mountain Salamander

Elkins & Cheat Bridge WV - Travel into the high country spruce forests of legendary Cheat Mountain on the most distinctive rail excursion in the Eastern United States. Named in honor of the little endangered creature whose sole habitat is the river of the same name, the CHEAT MOUNTAIN SALAMANDER takes you through some of the wildest mountain wilderness you will ever experience.

9 hour trip from Elkins. This 128-mile (approximately 9-hour) ride transports you through mile after mile of unbroken, untamed mountain wilderness that has remained unchanged since the time before modern civilization arrived. This trip also includes many interesting features such as a long tunnel built with an “S” curve far underneath Cheat Mountain, numerous long mountain vistas, and many opportunities to view exotic wildlife including bald eagle and black bear sightings. Also, stops will be made at the inspirational “High Falls of the Cheat” and the former sight of the notorious town of Spruce, WV, once the highest and coldest incorporated town east of the Mississippi.

3 Hour trip from Cheat Bridge. This 30-mile (approximately 3-hour) trip is a featured option for those who would like to explore the scenery and history of the logging town-site of Spruce and its environs.
