Curecanti National Recreation Area will be providing special Cimarron Sundays this summer. The third Sunday of each month, June through September, National Park Service interpretive rangers will be stationed at Cimarron to greet visitors, answer questions and provide access to Engine 278. 

This engine, along with a coal tender, boxcar, and caboose have been undergoing restoration over the last few years. The caboose is currently out of the area for restoration, but the engine, tender, and boxcar are in the train yard at Cimarron. Rangers, on these special Sundays, will provide access into the yard for viewing the newly restored train components. Rangers will also be roving the area to talk with visitors at the Mesa Creek trailhead, dam overlook, and other notable locations at Cimarron.

Join us to explore the area and learn about its history, geology, and train legacy on June 17, July 15, August 19, and September 16. Rangers will be on site from 10 am to 4 pm those days.
