Rolling between Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad takes on the country's highest rail summit


Taking on trestle-bridged creeks, hard curves, and rough-hewn tunnels, this historic narrow gauge railroad is the real deal. Amid Aspens and Ponderosa Pine, its coal-fired steamer crawls precariously along the cliff edge of a desert gorge and pushes to the alpine heights of the country's highest rail summit. Look sharp and you're likely to spot bear and elk along the way!
