It’s a train like no other. Departing from Talkeetna, the Hurricane Turn Train leaves civilization behind and makes a round-trip journey through the wilds of the Indian River Valley. Along the way, passengers may take advantage of the Hurricane’s unique flagstop service to get on or off the train anywhere along this backcountry route (due to the nature of this service, scheduled stop times may vary).

Visitors consider the Hurricane Turn Flagstop Train Alaska Railroad’s best-kept secret for a truly authentic Alaskan experience. Hurricane delivers local Alaskans to their remote cabins along the tracks and outdoor enthusiasts to remote areas for backpacking, camping, and fishing. You can get off the train anywhere between Talkeetna and Hurricane. When you are ready to return, you can stop the train by flagging it down. Or just ride the train round trip for a scenic train ride. On a clear day, Denali towers over the braided Susitna River.
