The Pumpkin Special

Visit Website

What better way to pick your pumpkin for Halloween than from a trainride through the beautiful countryside of the Baraboo Hills? The seven-mile, 55-minute round-trip ride on a former branch line of the Chicago & North Western Railway will include a stopover at the Quartzite Lake Pumpkin Patch.

Passengers young and old can take a leisurely stroll through the patch to select their pumpkin for purchase. The train conductor will help you load your pumpkin on the train for the return back to North Freedom. Price of pumpkin is extra in addition to train fare.

ALL TRAINS ARE DIESEL-POWERED.
