Fall is breathtaking as the Aspen turn colors. Highly recommend!
We took the train ride on THE weekend for fall colors. Each bend in the track provided a new scene that seemed more spectacular than the previous one. Nice history and local yore as we traveled. Easy to move around the train. Even took our old dog who snoozed during most of the trip. A great way to see the countryside without hiking.
Beautiful scenery while cruising on the train, what more could you want....well, my friend, you can add something. The CABOOSE! Granted it is at an extra cost but boy did it make it more enjoyable!
The train leaves from downtown Leadville and heads north for a few miles. Then it stops for a few minutes and heads back. For the standard fee of $30, you can ride in any of the cars (not engine or caboose) and they include open cars, covered cars, and covered cars with windows.
