Tunnel Road

Tunnel Road near Canon City is quite the adventureTunnel Road near Canon City is full of Royal George Region Atmosphere


Follow a 2-mile hike and bike trail through many tunnels blasted through solid granite. The Tunnel Road trail follows the Arkansas River and is an easy hike or ride through beautiful semi-arid mountains. Turn south off of US Hwy 50 onto Tunnel Road by the power plant on the western edge of Cañon City. Go straight on that road for about a half mile.
