Durango to Silverton Train RideFlag review
The train ride to Silverton from Durango was fantastic. We had read reviews ahead of time, so because we rode in an open car, we were prepared for the soot from the train and the need for sunglasses and dark clothes. That said, our boys loved the chance to ride in an "old west" train. My husband and I enjoyed the amazing scenery of the San Juan national forest. There were beautiful views of the mountains and the river that we would've otherwise not seen.
Tips for Families
The ride is slow, as it is an old fashioned train, so we were glad that we had booked a van ride back to Durango. Silverton is a neat town to poke around in. We wished that we had had more than an hour there.
