Durango & Silverton Railroad began as a way to haul gold and silver ore from the San Juan Mountains. This historic train route has been in operation for over 130 years.
The train departs Durango on a variety of tours. Combine a scenic train ride with an exhilarating zip line adventure or whitewater rafting trip. Summer and fall are the main seasons, from early May to late October. The Polar Express also runs for the Christmas season.
Book just a train ride and plan your own adventure. Take an early morning ride to Silverton, spend the day around this old mining town before heading back in the evening.
Departs: Durango and Silverton
Needleton Flag Stop – Or do what few do and depart halfway at the Needleton flag stop for a multi-day overnight backpacking trip into the Chicago Basin within the Weminuche Wilderness. Let the train know the time you’ll be returning and they will pick you up at the flag stop where they dropped you.
