Tracks Across Borders Byway


This drive offers multistate experiences traveling along the Colorado and New Mexico border between Durango, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico. Engulf yourself in Native American cultures, breathtaking countryside, treaties and technology, and varied communities of the present day. The byway’s primary feature is one of Colorado’s greatest stories, the creation and development of the state’s first, and ultimately the nation’s largest, narrow gauge railroad system. You will also pass through the Southern Ute Indian Tribe reservation land, whose history and culture are very important to the area.
