This unforgettable excursion whisks passengers to and from Cascade Canyon offering magnificent views of the Animas River and, once starts to fly, snowclad peaks. Spanning 26 miles each way, this 5.25 hour round trip experience is offered on select dates from Mid-November through early May. We recommend reserving your trip in advance online to assure the seats you want.
Departing from the Durango Depot, this trip takes you up into the Rocky Mountains with views of the San Juan National Forest as you travel alongside the beautiful Animas River while relaxing in heated coaches. Cascade Canyon is a destination like no other and is the perfect setting for a fire-side lunch, photo opportunities or a walk along the Animas River during your 60-minute layover. All trains have a concession car with a variety of snacks and drinks available for purchase.
