Beautiful drive and great views of Canon City. One way, some would find it a bit scary but I thought it was great. We did it during the day and again in the evening. A fun experience.

Have been over Skyline Drive countless times and still enjoy the views. It really isn't as narrow as you think it is, but for flatlanders it can be intimidating. Take your time, utilize the pull-offs to enjoy the views, look out for walkers and sight-seekers, and enjoy. Do NOT try to take an RV or trailer over this; the hairpin at the end is a killer. Stop at the pull off where you can first see Canon City to your left and, after putting your parking brake on (seriously), walk back down the hill and look at the dinosaur tracks above you on the hillside. Very enjoyable, short interlude on a trip to Colorado. And IT"S FREE!

If you have a fear of heights this may not appeal to you. If someone else can drive and you get up there, it is beautiful. Once you start you are committed to the journey, the only way down is to keep moving forward. I skydive and actually caught myself wondering if I had made a mistake on the way up. No guard rails and the road can get pretty narrow in spots with a steep incline. At the top there is a spot to pull off the one way road and take in the views. So worth it!
