Family Fun in Spanish Peaks Country

Spanish Peaks Country is awesome for families. We’ve got affordable, outdoor play that shows off our incredible scenery and cools you down when the days are hot.

Activity #1 – Rio Grande Scenic Railroad

Enjoy a leisurely and scenic ride that curves and winds through steep rocky grade and mountain meadows with elk, eagles, and bears cohabiting the land.
