list a pet-friendly property
There are many people who would love to see the country with their pet via the train. Unfortunately, none of the national commercial carriers, ie. Amtrak, allow pets as passengers. For those who want to ride the rails, but don't want to leave their pets behind, we offer a few scenic options.


The Skunk Train
(800) 77-SKUNK
Hwy 1 & Laurel Street
PO Box 907
Fort Bragg, CA 95437

The famous Skunk Train allows small dogs to see the sights provided they are in a approved covered carrier while on the train. Contrary to what some might think, the skunk refers to the odor from the original gasoline engines that were formerly used (now they have steam engines). Pets may be let out of the carrier at Northspur or Willits when you are off the train. Travelers will thoroughly enjoy the magnificent redwoods, picturesque water views, and over 30 bridges the train passes through.

San Francisco Cable Cars
Cable Car Barn & Powerhouse
1201 Mason Street San Francisco, CA 94108
(corner of Mason and Washington Sts.)

Since BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) only allows very small dogs in their carriers, we decided that it would be more fun to hop on the infamous San Francisco cable cars (after all they do run on rails). You and your dog can traverse this hilly city via any of the cable cars.

New Hampshire

Conway Scenic Railroad
(800) 232-5251
Route 16
North Conway, NH 03860

Travel on a nostalgic train rides through the beautiful Mount Washington Valley and the surrounding White Mountains of New Hampshire. You can choose from either the Valley Train route to Conway (55 minutes) or to Bartlett (1 3/4 hour). You'll journey back in time in the comfort of their restored, open or enclosed, passenger cars.
