Does anyone have information about the trail that is offered when doing the partial train trip to Denver falls?

We have kids with us and want to know how busy and well used the trail is as the train does not return for two hours for pick up. 

 

Thanks Cathy

This was from the middle of June, start with post 228. The rest of his semi live report is really good. There won't be any snow like in his photos.

Although I cannot offer first hand information, my understanding is that the hiking trail is gentle. As for the transportation to and from the trail, note the distance is 5.3 miles between Skagway Junction (next to the main railroad station in Skagway) and Denver, and the travel time is about 20 minutes. The round-trip fare is $40, a rather expensive fare compared to other passenger railroads in the United States. On many days there are two trains daily, departing Skagway at 7:40 a.m. and 12:40 p.m., destined for Fraser, B.C. As well, there are typically two trains daily returning from Fraser, B.C., to Skagway, which stop to pick up passengers at the Denver station at 11:50 a.m. and 4:40 p.m. Many other trains pass through Denver station but do not typically stop at Denver for passengers to board and alight. Do confirm train schedules for your day of travel.
