See the alpine flowers at their peak, splashing the mountain world with vibrant color! Join our experienced tour guides for a 20-minute hike through pine forests, aspen groves, and open meadows. View a multitude of varieties of wildflowers at the water tower. You might see Indian Paintbrush, Lupine, and wild strawberries. You may find anything from our “local” deer to a mushroom in a wet marsh.

Remember hiking shoes, a water bottle, and a camera. The train ride will depart at 10 a.m. and arrive back at the depot at 1 p.m. This hike is for people of all capabilities and interests.

Optional Lunch & Tour of Healy House Museum and Gardens

After the railroad wildflower tour, enjoy a catered box lunch on the lawn at the Healy House Museum, where you will have time to enjoy a stroll through heritage gardens. The gazebo frames the view of Colorado’s highest mountains, Mount Elbert and Mount Massive. The lawn is a good place to view Harrison Avenue, and you can see why August Meyer chose the “capital hill” area for his home.

After lunch, there will be a private guided tour of both the Healy House Museum and James Dexter’s cabin.
