How to Get the Most out of a Durango Train Ride

Mild to Wild’s Trails and Rails package offers a perfect one-way train experience combined with an adventurous Jeep tour! Here’s how:

Scenic Shuttle Ride: Start your day with a shuttle ride over the famous San Juan Skyway. Enjoy winding through 14,000-foot peaks and a stop at Molas Pass before arriving in the charming Victorian town of Silverton, Colorado.

Explore Silverton: Founded in 1874, Silverton’s wild western origins are fascinating. Enjoy a Jeep tour through the San Juan Mountains, exploring century-old mines and mills. Each season offers unique scenery – from spring waterfalls to summer wildflowers and fall’s glowing Aspen trees. Don’t forget your camera for scenic vistas and possible wildlife sightings!

Leisure Time in Silverton: Spend a couple of hours wandering the shops and restaurants of Silverton, free from the early commotion of saloon life and morning train crowds.

Narrow Gauge Train Ride: Board the train for a scenic return journey to Durango through the beautiful Animas River Canyon, high cliffs, and narrow mountain passageways. You’ll arrive back in Durango just in time for dinner.

Join us for a Trails and Rails experience to explore the rich history and breathtaking beauty of the San Juan Mountains and Silverton all in one day! Thanks for watching, and we hope to see you in the mountains!
