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. Some flowers sighted include 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 camera. The train ride will depart at 10:00 am and arrive back at the depot at 1:00 pm. This hike is for people of all capabilities and interests please call for more information (1-866-386-3936).
After the railroad wildflower tour, enjoy a catered box lunch on the lawn at the Healy House Museum where you will also have time to enjoy a 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 and you can see why August Meyer chose the “capital hill” area for his home.
Following lunch there will be a private guided tour of both the Healy house Museum and James Dexter’s cabin.
