We loved visiting the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park while in Canon City for a weekend. The park still hasn't reopened parts of it (the gondola, zip lining, etc) due to the fire damage in 2013, but the bridge is amazing and gives beautiful views of the gorge. It's hard to believe such a bridge was constructed in 1929! I... More

My wife and I visited the gorge in early February 2015 and were very impressed with everything. The bridge was something else! Although we walked only to the half way point, the views were breathtaking. Looking down into the gorge it doesn't seem that far until you see the railway line, which gives you some perspective of the height. It... More

Several daredevil activities to experience but also very cool for the milder crowd. The bridge and view are worth the trip but I can't wait for the zip-lines to open up.

We were on our way to the train station only to find it closed. We drove from Colorado Springs and instead of going back we went to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park instead. It was a surprise. And at the bottom of the gorge we did get to see where the train tracks passed. Breathtaking view! It was very... More

We enjoyed seeing the reopened visitor center, and for us added features, as it had been many years since we'd been here. It was a bit cold for zip line fun, but planning a trip to do that in the summer. Take time and enjoy all the things to do. I think you could spend a full day.

Yes most of the complex burned down in 2013 and that was not necessarily a complete tragedy as now the new and improved Royal Gorge park is bigger and better then ever, with brand new sky trams and new rides so get out here and take in the views.

My wife and I visited Royal Gorge Bridge and Park on the Sunday of the 3-day President's Day weekend, 2015. The area surrounding the park is beautiful: pinon-juniper uplands, with the Wet Mountains on the western horizon and the highest peaks Sangre de Cristos visible in the distance through the high valleys of the Wets. There were plenty of signs... More

Be sure to take a drive up to the bridge. We got there after 4pm and were unable to take the adventure, but the view was amazing and worth the ride. There are plenty of places to pull off of the road for pictures - be sure you have your camera or phone with you.
