Reins and Trains

Step back in time to some old fashion modes of transportation.  Take the Heber Creeper train ride through Heber Valley and watch out for Black Jack Raven and his Soldier Hollow Gang.  These Outlaws have been known to hold up the train and take hostages.  If your one of the unlucky (lucky) ones, you will be taken hostage and forced to saddle up for a horseback ride across the mountain side of the Soldier Hollow area.  Enjoy some great sites overlooking Deer Creek Reservoir and Mount Timpanogus.  After riding horses enjoy lunch as you wait the return of the Heber Creeper.  Once you've loaded the train you can tell your story of being kidnapped.  Don't tell anyone that being taken hostage could be so fun.  Horse Drawn Wagon Rides for large groups and for families with youngsters are also available so no one has to miss out on the adventure. 

Rides depart from the Train Depot in Heber City at 10:30 am.
