Hambone to Lookout Junction

While the McCloud River Railroad is still in operation, the segment between Hambone and Lookout Junction, owned by Burlington Northern Santa Fe but operated by McCloud River, last saw a train in December 2003 and has since been abandoned.

Everything east of McCloud is being turned into a rails-to-trails. All the track and ties have been pulled and some grading has been done to turn it over to a trail. You can drive most of it although some stretches are blocked by boulders.
