Christmas Tree Train - Friday-Sunday, November 23rd-25th
The train has arrived! It’s time to get the family together and head out to Cascade Canyon to find the perfect family Christmas tree! Join one of Durango’s holiday traditions with the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for a family friendly event you’ll be sure to remember. You’re going to want to bring a camera to capture the memory of cutting down your own tree. Because of the colder temperatures in Cascade Canyon, passengers will be treated to complimentary hot chocolate on the ride back. This event is ideal for families and friends looking to start, or continue, a Durango local tradition.
