Getting to the Hagerman Tunnel can be a fun, interesting, and not too strenuous hike by following the old RR bed from the Hagerman Pass Road. The Road is the old RR bed until perhaps a little over a mile above and east of the Busk-Ivanhoe Water Diversion Tunnel and the Windsor Lake TH. From the interpretive sign and large... More

this is a medium lenght hike with some elevation change, but most of it is not steep. the scenary is amazing, the old town ruins intersting, and the tunnel itself is amazing with the permanent ice in it. have some directions or a trail map before you take off on this trail.

This is a beautiful hike going up an old 6% train grade. It takes you through the old town of Douglass, where the ladies of the evening were too rough to work in the nearby Mining town of Leadville. I would say an easy hike (harder on the way up than down) at almost 12,000'. But... be prepared... start the... More

There are two simple ways to get to the old Douglass City ghost town that once housed railroad workers, one by heading up the Windsor Lake Trail off Hagerman Pass Road at the point where the road begins to climb (but be sure to get some directions, since that route leaves the Windsor Lake Trail early on and is not...

It's a nice summer hike with a lot of wild flowers. The tunnel entrance is visible with ice inside, even in summer.
