Hop aboard your own pedal-powered railcar for a spectacular 12-mile round-trip on the old Joseph Branch rail line between Joseph and Enterprise, Oregon. Part bike, part old-fashioned railcar, a trip on a “railrider” is a one of a kind experience in Oregon. The brainchild of Kim and Anita Metlen, this excursion is one of just a few legal “railrider” operations in the country. The line veers away from the road, passing through forest and ranch and and gives you a view of Wallowa county you can’t see any other way.
