I am scared of heights and the hubby really tested me on this drive. The road was narrow and we went high up. If you like to see breath-taking views and not afraid of a few sharp turns, enjoy!

It was pretty but I was usually to scared to look out the window. It is a one way road about ten feet wide with some pull offs. It is really pretty.

This drive is truly a gem! The drive itself only took about 10 minutes. You can stop towards the top and do some hiking, there is also a place that has dinosaur tracks so watch for the sign! It is a one way road that gets skinny at times, but not too skinny. It was built by the prisoners in... More

Narrow one lane road that offers an excellant view of Canon City, Colorado. A must to do at night, very narrow road, but a worth while ride. This is my third time to travel this road.

Did this with Colorado Jeep Tours. If you drive anywhere near Canon City you gotta do this! Watch out for the dinosaur prints on the left. There is a placard. This drive will thrill you, but not too scary for the family... maybe! A must-do!!!

I loved this drive and view. Half the fun was laughing at my wife as she tried to keep it together. Make sure you go slow and downshift to save your brakes.

If you like heights, this is a don't miss road to take. My hands were sweating within minutes of ascending up the mountain. Luckily, I was not the driver and my husband thought it was really cool. You can see amazing views from both sides of the road. I'm not sure I would want to go again, but it was... More
