For people who love to travel by train, the California Zephyr operated by Amtrak will get you the closest to The Little Nell. The train stops in Glenwood Springs, which is about 40 miles west of Aspen. To reach Aspen, you’ll need to take a tax, private care or bus for the hour-long ride into Aspen. The train is not the quickest way to get to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. However, you’ll find the scenery by railway is unparalleled as the tracks cut a path deep through the mountains where there are no roads and past the epic spires of Glenwood canyon on the banks of the Colorado River. If it’s about the journey and not the destination, travel by train might put you on the right track.
