Thanks for the great review. This part of the King River Gorge is a hidden gem that few people get to see. We were fortunate to see it after the rain. Thanks for the briefing suggestion.

Thanks for the review Laurie. Good to hear you had a great day out. We are indeed fortunate to be able to offer the King River Gorge Raft and Steam Experience with the West Coast Wilderness Railway. To our knowledge the Abt steam train shuttle indeed unique in the world. Cheers and look forward to meeting you or your friends in the future.
