Take your time! The road is very narrow! But the view all the way across is absolutely beautiful. Don't miss this!

Nice drive and great view of the city. Best part is that it was free. Wish we would have had our Harley with us for this ride.

A great way to see Canon City from above. We live in Louisiana and the only hills we have are ant hills so to get to drive on top of mountains even if only for a short while was fun.

Be sure to take your time as road is narrow and one way. The dinosaur tracks are well marked and easily walked back to from a parking area. Can see great distances on both sides of road

This is a must see. Free drive in the mountains and only a short drive away. The views from this one way road are spectacular. Take your time and try to find the Dinosaur foot prints.

This is a paved, one way, mile long scenic drive just to the south of Canon City. The road is incredibly narrow and you follow the ridge line which just falls off on both sides for the majority of the ride. The last half has a couple of very tight corners. There's a couple of small pull offs on the... More

IThis is a not so well known way to entertain friends in the Canon City area. What it is, as you might guess, is a drive up to the very top ridge along the mountain bounding the north side of the road heading into town. As you drive through the gated portal the scenery is quite nice. As the road... More

View dinosaur tracks from underneath on the way up this interesting one-way road built in 1905. Notice the arch at the entry with a stone from every state. The entrance is off US 50 about 3 miles west of Canon City and you drop down into an interesting old residential area near Downtown Canon City. From the top of this... More
