My brother recommended this while we were in Colorado on vacation. I wasn't sure what to expect and boy was I surprised by the outcome. It was a thrilling ride and I'm glad I got to experience it.

This is a short and delightful trip, but not for people who are afraid of heights or steep drop offs. There is no turning back once you're on it. The view of the surrounding area I'd great, especially on a sunny day.

It's a good thing this road is one way! I'm giving this 5 stars but a couple people in our group would give it a minus 5! White knuckles for the driver and a blanket over the head for one of the passengers! This road...More

Short fun scenic drive. Could be a little scary if you are afraid of heights. The dinosaur tracks are really cool to see from this perspective. There is room for maybe two cars to pull over, so don't be a total jerk like someone was...More

This is one of the highlights of the trip through Canon City, and ITS FREE! We loved this so much we did it every night, and the sunsets are amazing! A must see even if you are just driving by.

Interesting history, dinosaur tracks, very narrow. Scenic. We enjoyed this trip. We were on a tour in a Jeep so it was extra scary. There are areas you can pull over.

A Sudan will be okay. The road, although very narrow, is paved.

If there is bad weather you will not want to be on this road. It is truly a trip across the razor edge of the top. No stops on either side of the one way road.
