This was a short little drive but well worth it. Best time to go is at sunrise and sunset. Yes the road is narrow, but if your not a fraidy cat its great. Very neat and would love to go and see again someday. The views are fantastic up there.

SOOO creepy.... a one way lane up a mountain top. The kids LOVED it! Each side of the drive had "drop offs". A thrilling drive... A MUST!

This is a one lane, one way road with the best veiws and it is FREE. Do this on your way back from the Royal Gorge area because it will put out back in town. It is really cool.

The views from the top of Skyline Drive are tough to beat; there are also dinosaur footprints in the hill, which is cool to see. The road is VERY narrow, VERY steep, and has NO guardrails of any kind. Not for the faint of heart, those with large vehicles, or bad drivers, but fun if you like these types of scenic drives.

Drove here from River Runner's guide Justin's recommendation. Fun short drive. But beware that this is a steep one way no rail drive. So, if you are somewhat queasy about heights and steep turns, let someone else drive and enjoy the view.
