At historic Stearns, visit the Big South Fork Scenic Railway, where you can take a nostalgic 16-mile, round-trip train ride. The trip includes spectacular scenery as it descends into the gorge before stopping at the Blue Heron Coal Mining Camp, a NPS outdoor interpretive site. Another great stop in this area is the Barthell Coal Camp. Barthell was the first coal camp belonging to the Stearns Coal & Lumber Company.
