Join resident paranormal observer and Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad museum curator Jeff Ellingson, as he guides you on a fascinating walking tour of some of the most haunted locations at the railroad. As you are guided across the railyard past the roundhouse, the warehouse, the box cars  and the museum, you will learn about the rich history of each... and where poltergeists are whispered to appear on nights such as these!

Whether you're keen on hearing the many supernatural stories that abound here or are just interested in learning about the history and mystery of the railroad, join us for a fascinating look and rarely seen side of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad! 

Please note:  These tours are intended for mature (18+) audiences only.  Closed toe and closed back shoes are required on this tour. Participants will be walking about a mile over gravel and uneven terrain.

Zombie Crawl

The downtown Zombie Crawl is an event that is solely unique to Durango. At midnight on Halloween night, all zombies, ghouls, monsters, and other assorted creatures take to the streets in a peaceful, non-violent, unpermitted parade. This is a great way to check out all of the fantastic Halloween costumes and participate in one of the most unique Durango events. See you in the streets!
