The Payette River Flyer is our newest rail adventure on the North Fork Payette River. Explore the remote regions of the Boise National Forest with pristine scenery and glimpses of native Idaho wildlife along the way. Trains will operate throughout the summer during the weekends. Our train ride will offer direct and easy access to the river along with convenient parking in one location for rafters and kayakers. If you don't have a raft, sit back and relax while enjoying a remote less traveled region. Train rides will depart Cascade and Smiths Ferry. More Information
Try your hand at sifting for mineral treasures. Purchase a mineral and gem bag of rough and head towards the sluice. Pour your bag of rough into a screen tray as water travels from a wooden water tower through a sluice washing away the dirt, slowly revealing gems and minerals. After you discover your gems and minerals, use the identification card to discover what you found. This activity is located when you depart the train at the Railroad station in Banks.
