For more than 30 years, this volunteer theatre group has provided the community with old-fashioned family entertainment. The theatre produces melodramas from the 1700s and the Gold Rush era. The productions are interactive and encourage cheering for the hero—and booing the villain. In the past, the group has performed dramas with titles such as The Villain Wore a Dirty Shirt and Blazing Guns at Roaring Gulch. Tickets are $12 for adults; $6 for children under 12. Snacks, soft drinks and beer are available for $1-3. Call for this season's schedule of dramas.
This train is a restoration of the narrow-gauge Madera Sugar Pine Lumber Company Railroad. The four-mile track was rebuilt using original techniques, and it runs two vintage shay steam locomotives pulling a few passenger cars. You will hear the engine whistle, snort, blow and more. You will also be in the forest and get a good feel for what logging was probably like in the 19th century. The trains run on a variety of daily schedules from March through October.
Built in 1917, this 9-hole golf course was designed by Walter G. Fovarque. The par-35 course is 3,050 yards long, and the fairways pass between meadows. The trick is to keep your mind on your game because you may discover you are being watched by deer or distracted by the magnificent views. By all means, book your tee time in advance of your trip.
