Road is very narrow with steep drop offs. Too busy watching the road and dodging 16 year old kids and their souped up Hondas to see much. Went again on a Jeep tour and it was fantastic.

This was a fun little drive that took no time at all. We were on a time crunch or we would've walked the drive as many were doing. We stopped to look at real dinosaur footprints. Parents and kids loved it!

Great scenic drive if you are in the area! Especially for people not from the west. We are from Boston and the kids have never seen scenery like this.

Cool little​ drive on a high Ridge overlooking Canon City! Lots of trails you can hike. If you have a little extra time this is great!

This review is about Skyline Drive in Canon City, Colorado, not South Carolina. The former is about 3mi long. No clue about SC's.

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
