Georgetown Loop Railroad

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.

Dress warm or bring a jacket the high altitude wind is cold. The trip is a blast and very informative. If you love Colorado or train history this is the tour for you.
