Georgetown Loop Train Ride

Train Rides

Looking for an authentic Colorado train ride? On the other side of Berthoud Pass, about 45 minutes from Winter Park, lies the Georgetown Loop Railroad. It brings Colorado history to life in a fun adventure that will thrill the entire family. The beauty of the rugged Rocky Mountains surrounds you as an old-time steam locomotive or a powerful diesel locomotive winds up Clear Creek Canyon, hauling your train past the remains of several gold and silver mines.

The loop takes you between Georgetown and Silver Plume, over 2 miles apart, climbing 640 feet over mountainous terrain, requiring trestles, cuts, fills, loops and curves for a total of 3.1 miles of narrow gauge track. Today, the loop is a popular tourist attraction and an exceptional way to see Clear Creek Valley. Along the route, visitors can stop for a guided tour of the historic Lebanon Silver Mine (mine tour not recommended for children under the age of 5), and view wildlife in its natural habitat.

Departures are available from the Silver Plume Depot or Devil's Gate Station in Georgetown during the regular season (end of April through mid-October). Trains operating after Columbus Day only operate from the Devil's Gate Station in Georgetown.

Visit the Georgetown Loop Railroad website or call the railroad at (303) 569-0147 or (888) 456-6777 for an up-to-date train schedule and to purchase tickets.
