Don’t miss the Wildflower Special train rides with the Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad!
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.
Tour the Healy House
After the railroad wildflower tour, enjoy a catered box lunch on the lawn at the Healy House Museum. Then stroll through our 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. You can see why August Meyer chose the “capital hill” area for his home!
After lunch, you can take a private guided tour of the Healy House Museum and James Dexter’s cabin.
