Welcome aboard the Historic Royal Gorge Route Railroad, considered by many to be one of the most scenic train rides in the world. The train takes you from Canon City, Colorado on a 24-mile journey through the 1,000 foot deep Royal Gorge, alongside the raging Arkansas River, where you'll have the opportunity to observe Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, and Mule Deer. A two hour ride takes you on the most famous portion of the former Denver & Rio Grande Western train line.
There are classes of service for every budget from Coach to glass topped Vista Domes, Gourmet Lunch, Three Course Dinners, and Murder Mystery Trains. All passengers have access to one of our open-air observation cars for the best views of the Royal Gorge. Trains depart up to three times a day year-round at 9:30, 12:30, 3:30 and at 6:30 pm for the dinner and murder mystery trains.
