Use to be a really nice drive. Spent a lot of my time as a kid out there hiking and playing in the creek. However people today have lost a ton of respect. Someone tagged the old stone and eventually knocked it over. There is trash everywhere from soda bottles to couch's to old box springs. The city doesn't really...
Temple Canyon Park is good for hiking. Not very handicapped accessible though. Includes the eco park.. Was a popular area of Native Americans many years ago. Beautiful scenery on the south side of Canon City.
The rugged road--passable with 2WD--goes through a scenic, isolated canyon. There are at least a couple of picnic grounds, but the facilities are minimal. We were just passing through and didn't take any of the hiking trails. It's kind of hard to find from Canon City.
