If you are afraid of heights then this spot isn't for you. It has a beautiful view of canon city. It is only about a 2 mile drive but well worth a stop. This place doesn't have guard rails. I think it would be nicer to walk than drive. We had to stop a few times for those who were... More

This is a beautiful 2 mile drive. Absolutely hated that there weren't any guard rails and freaked out the whole time but it is what it is. Stunning views, a few places to turn off for photos. The only negative is that there are joggers and pedestrians al over the place on steep inclines and one wrong move and your... More

Skyline offers a beautiful view of Canon City. Wonderful for morning runs or for an evening hangout. I would not recommend if one is afraid of heights, but other than that it is a must do if you are visiting the area.

Skyline drive is well worth the venture. Good free fun and nice views of the Canon City to be had. I don't think it compares to Trail Ridge road in Rocky Mountain National park, but if you are in this part of the state, make sure to check it out!

Just ignore the review about the guide and getting hurt. This is a one lane road that you drive yourself. If you get hurt it's because you didn't tend to your own safety or walked off the road and stumbled over a rock. DO NOT drive this road if you are in a hurry. There are a couple of pulll... More

Skyline drive goes along the ridge of the mountains to the West of Canon City. First, it is like being on a roller coaster, it goes up and down. Second, don't go up if it is windy or icy. While they usually lock the gates under these conditions, the road is narrow, there are steep dropoffs and there are few... More

Guide did not attend to safety. I got hurt. The guide was on his last day of work and leaving to go back to school, and did not care about our safety.

OK, we have a lot of mountain roads in Colorado that will have you looking over an edge with a several hundred, or more, foot drop off where you would normally expect a shoulder, but at point along Skyline drive you have this on both sides of the road. Enjoy the view in the distance and the narrow ground below... More
