I saw the sign for Skyline Drive from the main road and pulled in unknowingly. Road is very narrow and the farther up I drove, the windier it got. Rather unnerving but didn't give up and was rewarded with wonderful view from the top. Then...I saw the narrow road down!

The name says it all! Located just a short distance from Canon City, you literally drive along the sky! Indeed it is a scenic drive, narrow, but so worthwhile! The fact that it is one-way makes good sense, though hikers are also welcomed...

An amazing engineering accomplishment for the time and tools. Dino footprints a surprise treat. Traveling the narrow road on the narrow ridge a rare experience.

Not sure it is adequate for cars to drive on...but breath taking views! Thought it would be best as a bike path, though.

My favorite drive of all times. I love the scenery of the 'as far as the eye can see' view.Great to pull over and grab your thoughts on looking over Canon City...a night drive is even better..

Great, scenic, short, side road; dinosaur tracks are highlighted along the way. Not recommended for those afraid of heights. The one way road is shared with hikers and their four footed companions. Spring and fall are spectacular times to drive the road and see Canon City in bloom or the colors of the leaves. We don't come into Canon City... More

A motorcycle rider told me about this in the parking lot of the Super 8 in Canon City. I made the drive later that morning in my Dodge Charger. It's a white-knuckle drive for sure and don't do it if you have a fear of heights. I was glad I did though.
