We are OPEN!! Running Cascade Canyon Express train excursions.
Depart on an unforgettable journey deep into Cascade Canyon aboard the world-famous Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Experience the iconic canyon views through some of the most rugged mountains in Colorado not accessible by any roads.
If you are looking for an unforgettable family-friendly train adventure with incredible geological features and fantastic scenery that is downright jaw-dropping, look no further. Board the train at the Durango Depot and depart from historic downtown Durango and travel along the Animas River for your journey to Cascade Canyon. Then sit back, relax and be amazed as you wind through steep mountain canyons and the high mountain curves of the pristine San Juan National Forest.
Included in this trip is a 45-minute layover at Cascade Canyon where train passengers will have the opportunity to enjoy a fireside lunch in the pavilion or a short walk along the Animas River to the footbridge.
Trains depart from the Durango depot at 9:30am and return at 2:30pm.
