Their website is awful (can't even tell if the schedule is 1 way or RT, it is RT), and the gentleman answering the questions is rude. Actually said he wasn't sure he believed I had all the troubles on the website. Then, I70 was closed, my granddaughter was sick, and I couldn't get any type of refund. Groupon told me to call the RR and the RR told me to call Groupon. No one will refund my 2 sets---I've lost almost $100. Horrible, horrible experience. I plan to file a complaint with the BBB against both Groupon and the Georgetown Loop.

The ride was leisurely going by beautiful scenery. The conductor was quite informative and with a touch of humor greatly enhancing the ride. The highlight of the trip was taking a mine tour with a most affable and knowledgeable guide.

Took mom for a relaxing train ride and then hiked to Grifgin memorial, such a perfect day. Id recommebd taking the train from Georgetown because Silver Plume station only had snacks and we were hungry for breakfast. If they had bagels or something...

Beautiful location. Amazing old steam engine pulling us along the route of a long ago narrow gauge railroad. The train crew, especially the conductor, we're kind and held the early morning train when they saw us arriving at the Silver Plume depot just as the train was loaded and about to depart. I heartily recommend this train ride.

From Our Editors

The engine traces a path along evergreen-studded slopes and the walls of Clear Creek Canyon. It trundles over iron bridges slung across deep ravines and past the remains of gold and silver mines that pepper the Georgetown Loop Railroad. This mainstay winds along roughly the same 3.5-mile corkscrew route between Georgetown and Silver Plume that it has since 1884, spanning rocky terrain and reaching elevations of up to 9,128 feet. Today, the railroad's historical 1920s steam engine and two 1940s-era diesel locomotives fulfill the same role they've always performed: ferrying passengers through the mountains.

In antique railcars, passengers embark on seasonal rides through the great outdoors, glimpsing wildlife such as bighorn sheep and mule deer. They cross four bridges, including the Devil’s Gate High Bridge, and pull into historic train stations to ensure the conductor hasn’t been carried off by a gang of bald eagles. In winter, the staff sets the train aglow with festive lights and decorations, and during the summer, passengers can disembark for guided walking tours of the Lebanon or Everett silver mines, originally bored in the 1870s.
