Since we have a camping trip set for this weekend, and will be near Leadville, it is a great opportunity to take this fun train ride!
Everyone is welcome to come with us - you don't have to do the camping part of the weekend. It's a good day trip for getting out of town! We can sit inside, or outside and the dogs are very welcome & Stella, Lucy & Milo had a great time last year!
You can just buy the tickets when we get there.
Price: $35 (Purchase tickets at the train station) Make sure you are at the station at least 20 minutes before the train takes off. There is a restroom on the train, and a few snacks for sale.
The Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad allows dogs on the train! What a sight we would be with our Berner Buds!
Welcome aboard the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad. Join us for a Colorado adventure you will not forget. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, this scenic train trip provides 2 and 1/2 hours of sightseeing, relaxation and a little glimpse back in history.
The train travels another 1,000 feet above the headwaters of the Arkansas River Valley. You will travel through pine forests, aspen groves and view high alpine meadows sprinkled with an array of colorful wildflowers in mid summer. Bring your camera to try to capture a picture of an eagle. Children have the chance to meet the engineer.
