Colorado’s vintage railways
Ride on “North America’s Most Scenic Railway,” the world-famous Royal Gorge Route. Return to the exciting days of the Frontier West on the old-fashioned Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad as you climb high mountain passages and pass through a breathtaking gorge along the way. The Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad will take you through the San Isabel National Forest past Mount Massive and Mount Elbert, Colorado’s tallest peaks. All aboard!
Day 1—Denver: It was the Iron Horse that helped tame the Old West, bringing an entire continent together and leading to the historic expansion of the United States. Now you can relive the thrill and excitement of that historic era on our Colorado’s Vintage Railways Tour.
Day 2—Denver/Colorado Springs: Today we’re off to the stunning Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This 1,367-acre park at the base of Pikes Peak is where the Great Plains meet the Rockies—and is like a little piece of heaven! You’ll be amazed by the abundance of plant and animal life here, as well as the magnificent red sandstone formations such as the Kissing Camels and Balanced Rock.
