Royal Gorge Route Railroad

Sheer granite cliffs and the Arkansas River's rushing waters frame the way for the historic Royal Gorge Route Railroad. This scenic rail line traverses the "Grand Canyon of the Arkansas" on its roundtrip journey from Cañon City, covering 24 miles overall. Unlike many of the Colorado Rockies' rail experiences, this route does not feature views of the mountains; instead, rocky, high-desert vistas overtake the landscape as travelers enjoy a first-class dining and travel experience.

All service classes are welcome to leave their seat and venture to the Open Air Car. This standing-room-only car is the ideal location to capture views of the stunning granite cliffs, rushing waters of the Arkansas River, and wildlife that frequently come within eyeshot of the tracks, including Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, and Bighorn Sheep. A highlight of the journey comes as the train crosses the Hanging Bridge, a point in the route where the gorge is just 30 feet wide. Another great spectacle is the Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge that passes overhead. All of these views are entirely uninhibited from the Open Air Car.

The train runs rain, snow, or shine throughout most of the year. There are up to four departures daily for guests to choose from, each lasting approximately 2 hours.

Showcasing rocky scenic delights and providing a culinary experience that rivals restaurants, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad continues to impress Colorado travelers with each departure.
