Are there any scenic Colorado train rides?
As an area with a rich history as a Gold Rush state, Colorado once had a thriving railroad system. Today, many of those historic railroads are open to scenic tours of the state. Here are a few scenic Colorado train rides to enjoy the beautiful Colorado landscape:
- Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Manitou Springs, CO: This scenic Colorado train ride takes you from Manitou Springs to Pikes Peak on a steam train. The beautiful mountain views (especially in the wintertime) are simply magical. It also makes for a wonderful fall foliage train ride. It's only an eight-mile run, but it will take you a little over three hours. However, the journey is incredibly worth the long ride.
- Royal Gorge Route Railroad, Canon City, CO: The Royal Gorge offers many different train-riding experiences, from dinner trains to murder mysteries and the Santa Express to scenic mountain tours. With its beautiful 1950s dome car filled with windows, your tour and the views will be incredible.
- Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, Antonino, CO: This is a bi-state railroad that travels between Colorado and New Mexico for a scenic tour of both beautiful states. The rails beneath your feet so to speak, were built in 1880 and the railroad had a thriving history of active use until the late 1960s. Now, you can enjoy scenic train rides through the valleys and mountains of Colorado and New Mexico.
These three train rides in Colorado are only a few of the many available for you to enjoy. Other options include the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad, and the Rocky Mountaineer in Denver.
