This gives a beautiful view of Canon City! My wife is afraid of heights so it wasn't her favorite but really is well worth the drive. It doesn't take long and it is free.

Nice workout with little traffic. Walk in early morning or late evening to avoid heat.

The view from this narrow road is great. One lane, one way, not for the squeamish driver or passengers.

This free, one-way drive is at the tippy top of a considerable rise that gives you an interesting aerial view, to your Right, of the highway you were just on and the various buildings and a reservoir. Then to the Left of you suddenly becomes visible, revealing housing and other buildings and sites. It is kind of a sudden alternate-reality feeling to find yourself on this very narrow peak with such an expanded view of otherwise hidden sights. Well worth the quick detour off the freeway, and there are some shallow pull-off places to stop, with an easy route right back onto the highway.
