This weekend looks like it’s going to be a rainy one, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. Check out the Georgetown Loop Railroad! They offer train rides, mine tours and dinner rides.
The Loop: You may want to pay a little extra for the fully enclosed car, but this 3.1 miles loop will take you over 4 bridges, up 640 feet and around 2 corkscrew loops. This ride from Georgetown to Silver Plume provides stunning views of the Clear Creek Valley. For more about this exciting ride click here.
Mine Tour: Why not add a little more excitement to your day by adding a mine tour to the itinerary. You can check out the Lebanon Silver Mine or the Lebanon Extension Mine. Both options are only accessible by train and will take you back in time to explore some rich history. For more details and tour lengths click here.
Dinner Rides: Choose between the wine and cheese train or the beer and brat train. All rides take place in a parlor car and will take you on an hour and a half journey through the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic District. Ride times are more limited, click here for more information.
Any of these options would be a great way to see some stunning views, learn about Colorado’s mining history and create some great memories. For more information and to book a ride contact either the Grand Time Lodge or Grand Lodge on Peak 7 Activities Department.
