What to Wear and Bring:

  • Dress in layers. As you head up to the high country the temperature can drop and change completely. Snow is possible even in July! Bring a warm jacket, warm hat, rain gear, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, water and of course your camera!

Important Considerations:

  • Kids 4 and under can ride on your lap if you want to save the money.
  • Wear dark clothes because of the soot from the train.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from a cinder that can come from the steam engine.
  • We recommend the open air gondola for summer trips!
  • You can bring your own snacks for the train, but alcohol is not allowed aboard the train.
  • You must bring your own car seats for children who require them on the jeep trail tour, Mild to Wild does not provide any. The Colorado Car Seat Law states that children up to 4 years and 40 pounds must be in an appropriate car seat and children 4 to 6 must ride in a booster car seat, unless over 55 inches tall.
