On the Hill: Scenic railroad tour

On the Hill is brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.

VIDEO: In a throwback episode to 2013, Vail Daily On the Hill reporter John LaConte explores the scenery of Eagle and Lake counties by traveling Highway 24 — officially designated one of America’s Scenic Byways — through Minturn, Gilman and Red Cliff. Once in Leadville, we get to see an excerpt from LaConte’s trip on the Southern Railroad’s scenic line high above Camp Hale. For more information visit http://www.leadville-train.com.
