"Go on Silverton-Durango train ride." Colorado Things to Do Tip by shorty68

Colorado Things to Do: 315 reviews and 462 photos


The scenery is spectacular. Take the bus from Silverton to Durango and then take the train back. If the weather is nice, try to get a open-air gondala. Try to take the trip when it is not so crowded so that you can change seats between the open car and the closed car (if you are in the open car, the smoke from the train may get to you after awhile). The view of the scenery is a lot better from the open car.
