Train Rides

Enjoy Colorado Railroad Adventure Today!

A fun way for people of all ages to see the mountains

Alpine Activities offers spectacular Colorado Train Ride near Frisco, Keystone, Breckenridge, Dillon and Vail. Enjoy Leadvilles Train ride with panoramic views of the Arkansas River Valley forest and incredible views of Colorado's highest peaks, colorful wildflowers and majestic aspen groves. Escape to the wilderness while enjoying an on board narrative of Leadville's colorful past. This is the perfect way to relax; it's one of the best things to do in the Rocky Mountains!

The Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad travels north along the Arkansas River Valley, it raises up 1,000 feet off the valley floor so that you will have some spectacular views of Fremont Pass and the two tallest peaks in Colorado, Mt. Massive and Mt. Elbert. A relaxing train ride through the Rocky Mountains May through October.

"It's not the destination, but the journey that's important." This journey is full of breath-taking panoramas across the Arkansas River Valley and humorous narratives about Leadville's colorful past. Mining and railroading were a large part of the local history, and passengers on this Colorado train ride will find it easy to step back in time on the Leadville, Colorado & Southern.

A fun way for people of all ages to see the mountains. Meet the engineer, take a picture with the conductor and view the world from 10,000 feet.

How long is the Train Ride - 2 and ½ hour adventure through the untamed wilderness of the San Isabel National Forest is not to be forgotten. We begin boarding half an hour prior to each trip, and seating is on a first come first-served basis. There are restrooms on the train.
