“Colorado family vacation 2013”

SOOO creepy.... a one way lane up a mountain top. The kids LOVED it! Each side of the drive had "drop offs". A thrilling drive... A MUST!

“Must See!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

This is a one lane, one way road with the best veiws and it is FREE. Do this on your way back from the Royal Gorge area because it will put out back in town. It is really cool.

“Amazing views...if you can handle it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

The views from the top of Skyline Drive are tough to beat; there are also dinosaur footprints in the hill, which is cool to see. The road is VERY narrow, VERY steep, and has NO guardrails of any kind. Not for the faint of heart, those with large vehicles, or bad drivers, but fun if you like these types of scenic drives.

“Fun little drive with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Drove here from River Runner's guide Justin's recommendation. Fun short drive. But beware that this is a steep one way no rail drive. So, if you are somewhat queasy about heights and steep turns, let someone else drive and enjoy the view.

“Dangerous, not patrolled often”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Skyline drive is truly beautiful but due to drunken, high, immature drivers, it is very dangerous. I live in Canon City and have been a regular hiker of the road. As of late it is becommong more and more dangerous. Check for yourself and you will see numerous skidmarks, vandalism, liquor cans and bottles, tossed cigarette butts, etc. You will probably see teenagers pulled over openly smoking pot. Yesterday I missed being killed by teenagers in an old truck, going 50 or 60 on a curve. Please watch out and protect your families and pets... very, very dangerous, people have died there.
