For people who live in Denver and the surrounding Front Range, taking the train to visit Glenwood Springs just might change the way you feel about close to home vacations. If you are traveling on the California Zephyr either westbound or eastbound, we are an easy “hop off and hop on” option a few steps from the train station!

Breaking News ::: Small dogs are now allowed on Amtrak trains and we are pet friendly. So, bring Fido with you when you come!

When you arrive here you really wont need a car! You can walk to all of downtown, including The Hot Springs Pool. Bike rentals are readily available and a regional bus system can whisk you up to Aspen and Snowmass for events or day trips. You’ll save money on gas, contribute to a green environment, be more relaxed thanks to not fighting traffic all day and to top it off, you get to enjoy the scenery instead of the tailights in front of you!

Amtrak usually takes about 5 hours to travel on the train for Denver and costs as little as $44 each way. The train leaves Denver just after 8 AM and begins its journey in the Rocky Mountains via one stop in Fraser and Granby. The return is equally convenient with an Eastbound departure for Denver in the early afternoon. If you hop off and on via a longer journey you get to spend a full day in Glenwood Springs with plenty of time to enjoy the attractions here.
