The Georgetown Loop Railroad, a spectacular stretch of three-foot narrow gauge railroad, was completed in 1884 and is considered an engineering marvel for its time. In 1973, the Colorado Historical Society began restoring the railroad in its 978-acre Georgetown Loop Historic Mining & Railroad Park. The Georgetown Loop Railroad is located only 45 miles from Denver and is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains. Winter, spring, summer, & fall all offer spectacular views of the mountains and are accompanied by the incredible feeling of stepping back into another time where the railroad ruled, mining was a way of life, and outlaws littered the land. This fascinating history is all a part of the Georgetown Loop experience.
