Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For all their ruggedness, the Sawatch Mountains were far from impervious to man’s endeavors during the nineteenth century. A good example of this is the old railroad grade that crosses the Continental Divide by way of the 2,161-foot-long Hagerman Tunnel.

Representing the labor of hundreds of immigrant laborers, this tunnel was the highest railroad tunnel in the world at the time of its completion in 1887."
