NOT a scary drive. Would be a good hike. Plenty of pull-offs and plenty of places to enjoy the views. Go up there either very early or very late in the day for the best views.

Took this little side trip after returning from the Royal Gorge Bridge. It's paved but no guard rails and sheer drop offs. One-way only so no turning back. 15 mph and pay attention to the road. Fun drive! Go to YouTube for thrilling videos.

Definitely worth the drive, but not in bad weather. Its a narrow road with no shoulder and long steep dropoffs.

This was a great way to spend a little family time and the view of the road dropping off into space was amazing.

This is an interesting drive on a 1 lane road that travels the ridge. There are interesting views, and it doesn't cost anything. Do it if you're there, but don't drive 100 miles out of your way.

Thank goodness the drive is only a few miles. It is exhilarating and breathtaking. If you are afraid of heights think twice about driving but it's definitely worth it to try. My husband was the driver and he is afraid of heights so he stayed...More

Went rafting and instead of driving the usual I50 back to Canon City took this 15 minute diversion. Great views on both sides of mountain. Birds eye view of historic downtown and road drops you off right into it. Don't go if afraid of heights,...More

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
