AUTUMN LEAF SPECIAL

Surround yourself with the beauty and splendor of Autumn during the most colorful time of the year. On weekends, we offer 1½-hour round-trips to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove or 2½-hour round-trips to Hockessin. On select weekdays, we offer 1½-hour round-trips to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove. Bring your camera and behold the best that the Red Clay Valley has to offer.

MT. CUBA PICNIC GROVE 1½-hour round-trip
On our trips to Mt. Cuba, you'll enjoy a ½-hour layover at our secluded picnic grove along the banks of the Red Clay Creek. You can pack a picnic lunch (or purchase food and drinks at Greenbank Station) to enjoy during the stop.

HOCKESSIN 2½-hour round-trip
On our trips to Hockessin, you'll travel the entire length of the railroad (a 17-mile round-trip) to the town of Hockessin. You'll spend a ½-hour layover in Hockessin, where you can browse the local shops or purchase food for the return trip from one of several eateries near the tracks.

PURCHASE A PUMPKIN!
We will be selling pumpkins at the station on October 21 ONLY for your child to decorate. Pumpkins are limited in quantity and will be available for $3 each or 2 for $5. Our pumpkins were donated to the railroad by a generous supporter, so 100% of your pumpkin purchase will directly support the Wilmington & Western!
