Bang for the buck

Fun... free.. beautiful views of the city and the mountains. Definitely worth the (extremely short) side trip.

We actually ended up driving this twice. We didn't stop to read the signs the first time, glad we went back and read them, some very interesting history to be seen!

Have your driver watch the road and enjoy the scenery! Narrow, winding road with sharp drop on the sides, parking at the top so you can take beautiful pictures! Highly recommend this free side trip. Bring your walking shoes and camera.

We enjoyed this free, short, scenic and only slightly unnerving drive along a winding narrow road on a knife edge with drop offs on both sides and a great view of Cañon City. Don't miss the dinosaur footprints -- pull over when you see the explanatory sign on the left.

Took our jeep up and the road is very narrow but still plenty of room. It's easy to see why they call it Skyline because when your driving up or going around a curve all you see is sky..the views from up there are great. I would highly recommed taking the drive...

We did the Skyline Drive on My Ultra Limited. I LOVED it... My wife HATED it. Narrow road with great views... but, keep your eyes on the road!

I loved seeing the drive on the Segway tour, especially the way down on the switchback! Not sure I would bother driving it in a car, but you could.

A beautiful FREE, view of canon city. It is definitely a skyline view. Very high, narrow road. I was nervous, because I have a fear of heights, but SO worth it!

My family went to Skyline Driver after we went on the train ride at the Royal Gorge. We went to the top half way and stop to look at all the things in Canon City Colorado.It's a very awesome place to go in Colorado.

Do yourself a favor and forget the comments about this drive being too scary! My husband and I are in our mid-60's and had no problems! The views are absolutely breathtaking! Yes, the road is narrow with no shoulder, but since the drive is one-way all the way through, there is no problem. The view was so astounding that we... More
