The Georgetown Loop RR Tour

Add a delicious picnic lunch in an amazingly serene mountain park setting plus FREE large hand-made root beers from an authentic 1901 soda fountain and you've got more fun in a single day than most folks find in a whole week!

…Oh, and did we mention FREE digital photos and videos of the whole family sent to you over the internet?

The Historic Georgetown Loop

Our most popular mountain railroad adventure is the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad tour. From early May to the first week in January, we feature daily excursions to the “Silver Queen of the Rockies,”… Georgetown, CO. This railroad traces its heritage all the way back to the booming silver rush days of the 1880’s, when tons of rich minerals were freighted down the tracks through Clear Creek Canyon to the smelters of Denver.

Just getting to Georgetown's Devil's Gate train station (named after a very intriguing rock formation that your driver will point out) is a unique adventure as the limo van journey features a brief intermission high atop Loveland Pass at 11,990 feet above sea level. The splendor of the Continental Divide is on full display as we present a photographic opportunity for all of you shutterbugs that bankrupts the English language with its raw beauty.

Devil's Gate Train Station

Devil's Gate Train Station

Upon arrival at the Devil's Gate train station, our drivers present each Alpenglow Adventures passenger with a complimentary water bottle and sunscreen lotion prior to boarding. Next, smile for the camera as your driver/photographer clicks a close-up shot of you and your compadres on the scenic Clear Creek bridge. Then board the historic narrow-gauge train and choose between the sun-splashed open-air rail cars for taking the best photos or the roofed open-air cars for maximum comfort!
Spectacular Views of Clear Creek

Spectacular Views of Clear Creek

With three blasts from the steam whistle, your journey begins. Ride in comfort and style as the powerful turn-of-the-century locomotive chugs through lush forests of blue spruce and lodgepole pine. And keep your camera ready as the railroad crosses the thunderous waters of Clear Creek eight times!

From its birth at the top of the Continental Divide to the majestic waterfalls beneath the High Bridge, Clear Creek is what inspired treasure seekers to "go west, young man, go west and grow up with the country." Chock full of gold flakes and nuggets, this vibrant waterway runs cold and clear all year long and enthralls rail passengers with its sparkling vistas and thunderous acoustics.

1880’s-era Silver Mine

1880’s-era Silver Mine

Then, explore the 1880’s Lebanon silver mine, escorted by a seasoned and knowledgeable tour guide. This expedition will amaze and delight you with the visual history of deep-rock mining and the early frontier lifestyle. If you’re eagle-eyed, you might even find a silver nugget or two, still nestled in the landscape. Many of our guests have claimed that this mine tour was far and away the most unique experience of their entire Colorado vacation!
95-foot High Bridge

95-foot High Bridge

After the hour-long silver mine tour, re-board the train and experience the awesome views from the High Bridge as the train completes a 360º loop above Georgetown. This is the only operating railroad in all of North America that makes a complete loop upon itself in the open air to gain altitude! In so doing, you are suspended 95 feet above the valley floor with the echoes of the train whistle bouncing off the mountain walls. Hold on to your hats!

When the “iron horse” returns you to the picturesque Devil's Gate train station, its time for the next big adventure--- Lunch! But not just any noon-time meal! No, we take you to Georgetown Park for a delicious lunchtime interlude in the Victorian Gazebo in the center of this mountain town oasis.
Entertainment & Mountain Picnic

Entertainment & Mountain Picnic

Featuring a world-class playground for the young and the young at heart for your pre-lunch entertainment, we then spread an all-you-can-eat picnic lunch in the warm Rocky Mountain sunshine. In today's complex world of multi-tasking and bun-on-the-run fast food lunches… ask yourself, “When was the last time I truly relaxed at a fabulous outdoor picnic setting with friends and family?“ Alpenglow Adventures reconnects to that memorable time in your life when the noon-time pace was a little less hectic and the fine art of picnicking was a one of life's secret treasures!
Downtown Historic Georgetown

Downtown Historic Georgetown

After filling your bellies with great food, your driver then performs an impromptu magic show, featuring some of the younger guests on the tour as the magician's apprentices… complete with prizes for all the youngsters! Before leaving the park, we commemorate the fun with a relaxing photo opportunity at the Lunch Log, for one of the most endearing family settings in America. So don’t forget to bring your video camera and be ready to capture some once-in-a-lifetime footage.

Next, we take our guests to Downtown Historic Georgetown, where we feature a leisurely stroll through the fascinating old-time curio shops in the frontier downtown promenade. How does fabulous discounts on exquisite hand-crafted jewelry, souvenir hats, t-shirts and free large hand-crafted sodas from an authentic 1901 soda fountain sound?
