You will meet your guide for a safety briefing prior to departing from Joseph. Please keep your headlamp on at all times, stop at our marked crossings, and keep an eye out for critters.
At our midpoint you may carefully get off of your Railrider. This is a great time to stretch your legs as your guide turns around your Railriders. You will re-board after your guide rotates them for your return trip. This is a great time let your guide know if you need a seat adjustment.
This is the “uphill” portion. It is a gentle yet consistent uphill grade back to Joseph. It will be nice and cool so this shouldn’t be much trouble for anyone.
Pace is key, take it easy and the pedal will be easier.
Congratulations you made it! Checkout our souvenir shop and museum area in our office.
Don’t forget to share pictures and stories of your adventure with friends and family.

💡 Tips for a fun trip
It can still be quite cool here in Wallowa County in May and June and once September comes around it starts again so a jacket or windbreaker may be helpful. It’s typically cool at night all year long.
Your brief midpoint stop in the middle of the Wallowa Valley is a great place to stretch your legs and sit back in your seat and soak in the stars.
Remember to watch your step and take your time moving about.
Your guide will turn around the Railriders and will have everyone sit back down afterwards before the start of your return journey. There will be no restroom at the mid-point.
During the day, Joseph has all sorts of services; adventure, shopping, food, drink, public restrooms, parks, motels, lodges, BnBs, RV parks, and more.

Essentially it comes down to insuring the safety of everyone and making sure your Railriding experience is memorable for all the right reasons.
Please refer to our Policies page for weather related cancellation details and more.
This trip requires you to cross three active road crossings in the dark, it is very important that you stop and look both ways before you cross and always keep your head lamp on.
We do not have the right-of-way and people will not be looking for you so this needs to be taken seriously.
Balance and uneven ground
Most of your trip will be illuminated by head lamp. The ground surrounding the tracks is uneven and has lots of loose gravel. Remain on board until you are instructed otherwise. Walk slowly and watch your step.
It’s certainly possible to get some mosquito bites out there. However it’s pretty rare. We recommend using bug spray if you are concerned.
If you have a serious allergy please come prepared with your EpiPen or medication if needed and notify your guide of your allergy prior to riding.
A lap seat belt must be worn whenever your Railrider is in motion.
