Please arrive early. We need to have all the cars parked by 10am. Drive in from North Graham Hill Rd (see the map). Have your ticket ready when you arrive to the gate. At this point we don't have time to look for the ticket.

We will guide you forward after checking your ticket. Before directing you to the parking area we will take a picture of every car, so leave some space to the car in front of you.

2) NMD 2022 Celebration

10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Roaring Camp Railroads

5401 Graham Hill Road
Felton, CA 

Take a trip back in time to the Wild West where the ponies ran wild and wagons had 5.0' wheels. This unique location gives a back drop for our modern ponies to celebrate the birth of the Ford Mustang.

We will enjoy good food, music, and camaraderie with fellow Mustang enthusiasts. You will also have opportunity join us on a train ride to the redwood forest, and win cool raffle prizes.

Town of Roaring Camp

​In 1842, Graham established the first saw mill west of the Mississippi. Fortunately, the Big Trees here were spared the woodman’s axe, and 25 years later became the first virgin stand of coastal redwoods to be protected from logging.

The area’s first railroad, the Santa Cruz & Felton, began carrying tourists to the Big Trees and the beach in 1875. In 2013, the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge RR celebrated its Golden Anniversary (50 years) and the Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific RY has been operating along the 1875 Santa Cruz & Felton route since 1985.

The dream of preserving a piece of the 1880s and early California was the dream of Roaring Camps Founder F. Norman Clark.
