This can be scary for anyone. Driving up on a cliff with no barriers. This is one way and the scenery is beautiful. You can see all of Canon City.

Close to town. Short little drive, but impressive. Easy to get a bit of a feel for "off-roading" or "four-wheeling", from the comfort of your passenger vehicle, without taking any risk. Nice view of the entire town.

I guess I never had time but many times have I passed through Canon City and right by this drive. I finally took the time to drive it and it was great. 1 lane right on top of a ridge with excellent views of Canon City and the surrounding area. Places to park and hike around as well. Well worth...

Why not go. It's frigging free! Terrific views from this totally free park in Canon city, CO the drive is easy to miss but look for it and double back if you need to. It is worth it. You can see a really cool sunset from up there. Truly amazing. Must see and must do.

The road was twisty and the views amazing. At the top you can see on both sides. Canon City on one side and mountains on the other. Loved it

Skyline Drive, just west of Canon City is an awesome drive!!! It's a narrow one lane (one way) road across the top of a ridge on the west side of town. The views are spectacular on both sides of the Drive. It's not for the faint of heart, but it's a fun drive!! I'd definitely recommend it!!
