Photographer's Note

"You will find Skyline Drive just west of Caņon City or about 5 miles east of The Royal Gorge Bridge. About 1905 convict labor built the two and one-half mile Skyline Drive that rides the hogback behind the penitentiary. The one way road on the crest of a Dakota sandstone ridge six hundred feet above the land below, is well worth the few minutes of a visitor's time it takes to travel the loop and re-enter Caņon City. Follow the sign at the end of Skyline Drive to US 50, you will be on 5th Street just a few blocks from Main Street. Be sure to look for the Dinosaur Tracks along this must see drive."

The Skyline Drive "IS A MUST" if you visit Caņon City.
If you don't have the courage to drive, do as many of the people in this area do: WALK.
