Colorado - Royal Gorge Route Railroad

Caņon City, CO - Climb aboard Colorado's most scenic train for a journey through the spectacular Royal Gorge. Since 1879, these tracks have followed the winding, tumbling Arkansas River deep within the soaring, 1,000-foot granite cliffs of Colorado's Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge Route is a quality, Colorado attraction - no thrill rides or cotton candy, just a focus on outstanding service, delicious food, and unique classes of service.

1999 marked the return of passenger service through this magnificent gorge after a 32 year absence. The Royal Gorge Route follows the most famous portion of the old Denver & Rio Grande Western train line, 24 miles round-trip, from Caņon City to Parkdale and return. The two hour train ride takes passengers through the "Grand Canyon of the Arkansas" on an unforgettable journey over the famous Hanging bridge, which clings precariously to the steep granite walls of the Royal Gorge, towering over 1,000 feet above.
