A narrow, one way road that is not suitable for RV's or over-size vehicles and that offers three miles of thrills.

Fabulous views from the drive; many places to pull off and explore. At times there are straight-down views from the road. Many "flat landers" are holding onto the car for deal life! Really well-worth making the drive.

This is one of my favorite spots to drive. The up and down roads makes the drive feel like a roller-coaster. Being so high above the city, the view is stunning. Especially at night. They close the roads during bad weather though, which is good...More

This is a must if you visit Canon City. Amazing views on both sides. Its a one-lane road that starts on the northern side. There are plenty of pull-offs so you can stop and take photos or read about the history. We had people who...More

This can be scary for anyone. Driving up on a cliff with no barriers. This is one way and the scenery is beautiful. You can see all of Canon City.

We ride from cripple creek to Pueblo and then up the skyline drive. You can see for miles and the road is short over the hillside but twisty Bring your scooter and have fun with a view !

This review is about Skyline Drive in Canon City, Colorado, not South Carolina. The former is about 3mi long. No clue about SC's.

I would not try it. There's a tight turn at the end that takes you back (down) in the opposite direction. In addition, wind can be an issue with a high-profile vehicle. It's not windy everyday, but this is the Front Range of... More
