The 45 mile Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad has been in existence since 1881. It was then used as an important mode of transport between the silver and gold mining ores in the San Juan mountains and the town of Durango. Today, the heritage railroad is an important transport line from the point of view of tourism and serves as an easy yet adventurous travel route to Silverton winding across the breathtaking canyons of the San Juan National Forest. The steam-powered locomotive which were then used by miners, are functional even today. A journey on one of these would take you through an adventure which is marked by spectacular views across the dense forest. Call or visit their website for group reservations.
