We rode the Georgetown Loop Railroad. There are two places to catch the train. You can catch the Georgetown Loop Railroad in Silver Plume and ride it down to Georgetown and back. Or you can catch the train in Georgetown and ride it up to Silver Plume and back. Georgetown and Silver Plume are about 2 miles from each other. The Georgetown Loop Railroad travels a winding track and takes about 20-30 minutes each trip to slowly make its way back and forth between Georgetown and Silver Plume.
If you’re in to magnificent views then the Georgetown Loop Railroad tour might be what you’re looking for. There are lots of camera moments as you slowly wind your way between towns. At one point each way you will cross a bridge that is a couple hundred feet long, inclines 6 feet from end to end, and is about 100 feet off the ground. A river runs below the bridge.
