I have always been fascinated by the Moffat Tunnel - Especially because of the size of the trains that traverse it. Love seeing gigantic coal trains come through and I end up hanging out here part of the day to get pictures. :)

This is an interesting historic site, and its fun to see the train pop out if you are there at the right time. You can look it up online and read about how it got here. It truly was an engineering marvel for its time....More

The Moffat Tunnel has a great story and is interesting to go up to the entrance and see. You can walk right up to it from The Village at Winter Park.

Wonderful ride up from Denver. The "hosts", conductors, everyone were incredibly . The moffet tunnel is the end of the line, and Ta da there you are in the middle of everything, snow, skiers, shops and restaurants.
