Train Tours & Trips

The La Veta Pass Route

Colorado is full of scenic wonders, from soaring 14,000-foot peaks to mountain lakes and meadows to dramatic cliffs and canyons. But few people have access to the truly wild and remote regions of Colorado like those found along the route of the La Veta Pass route – a legendary pass in railroading circles that marks the highest point at which any standard gauge rail crosses the Rockies in Colorado.

The La Veta Pass Route train departs on Thursday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, at 9:30 in the morning from historic Alamosa and winds through country ranging from agricultural flatlands to colorful foothills to cliff-sided mountains – much of it inaccessible by motor vehicle – on its way to the charming art town of La Veta. A leisurely, two-hour stop for lunch allows passengers to relax in the park, do some shopping and gallery browsing, or enjoy a great meal at one of La Veta’s local restaurants and cafes.

The train then departures La Veta at 2pm and arrives back in downtown Alamosa in time for dinner.
