Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive is a 4.1km (2.6 miles) long, scenic drive across a razorback ridge close to Cañon City offering panoramic views. Starting from US Highway 50 this road is quite narrow and the drop offs are a bit intimidating on each side. This a very steep drive with
only enough room for one car to go up. There is no turning around. The surface of the road is asphalt. Take it slow and pay attention. There are no guard rails and at some points it slopes down on both sides. You are literally on a little strip of roadway on top of mountain. Dinosaur footprints were discovered along it in 2001. You can see a series of Cretaceous Ankylosaur tracks made by a group of dinosaurs walking side-by-side through mud.
