Rockies to the Red Rocks

Connect the natural beauty of two states - Colorado and Utah - on the newest route offering in the Rocky Mountaineer family, Rockies to the Red Rocks. This route has been years in the making and connects regions in the United States with vastly different landscapes but a similar ambiance: adventure. And from the glass-domed ceilings of Rocky Mountaineer's train cars, it is easy to soak it all in on the leisurely, daylight-only route.

A feast for the eyes also awaits on this journey, as mountains and forests transform into arid expanses, hoodoos, and natural arch formations during the two-day expedition. The Rockies to the Red Rocks trip begins in the "Mile High City," Denver. The journey continues alongside the Colorado River, meandering through valleys and amongst mountains and foothills. Several dramatic canyons come into view during the trip, including Byers and Gore Canyons. After following approximately 175 miles of track, the train reaches its first stop, Glenwood Springs. Because this train only operates during daylight hours to provide the most incredible views, guests stay overnight in this resort town before the journey continues.

A showcase of the Southwest's contrasts lies ahead as the train commences its journey toward Moab. The route proceeds across Parachute Creek to begin the day's travels and then passes beautiful natural points of interest, including Mount Logan, De Beque Canyon, and the towering peak of Mount Garfield. Winding alongside the Colorado River, the Rocky Mountaineer approaches the Colorado-Utah border and is almost immediately greeted with the red sandstone for which Utah is so famous. Enjoy a look at Mount Peale and a glimpse at Arches National Park during the last of the day's 194 miles of travel, right before the train reaches its final station in Moab.
