“This was a great drive!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I must warn you that it does go up really high and you are driving like along the top of a mountain, but it is soooo worth it, the views are beautiful. We asked the locals about this place, in search of more adventure and they recommened it, and it was well worth it.

“Not for the quesey”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We happened upon this while in the area and it was free (not much free anymore). I would have paid to see this view. The road is paved which helps with fears of driving off the road. Plenty of look outs to take photos and enjoy the view.

“Short, scenic drive with beautiful views”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is a short drive, but a fun one. The road is one way and winds upwards with no guard-rails and sheer drop-offs which adds to the adventure. There are dinosaur prints you can pull off and see along with other pull-offs you should take advantage of to see some gorgeous views over Canon City. It is especially nice to take a short drive for such nice views. Definitely recommend this if you are in the Canon City area.

“Glad it's only one way”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

A fun drive that offers great views of the surrounding area. Easy to drive by so know where you're going. Narrow paved road with several pull outs, it's worth the drive. Get out and walk around and see the views and the dinosaur footprints. There are several hairpin turns so don't plan on taking your long, long trailer.

“Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

I cannot say enough about this short drive. Probably the most amazing drive I've ever taken. This is a must see if you are anywhere in the area. We stopped and took several pictures. Nerve-racking but awesome!
