The 5,000-acre Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, managed by Cañon City, is home to one of the most beautiful and iconic natural wonders in the state. And now, it’s easier than ever to get an up-close view thanks to the Royal Gorge Park Trails System.
Completed in 2018, the Royal Gorge Park Trails System traverses the gorge’s rim and surrounding hills, giving hikers and mountain bikers over 17 miles of singletrack to explore and incredible views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Arkansas River as their backdrop.
The park’s landscape is filled with rocky outcroppings that stand out from the panoramic horizon of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in the distance. Whether you’re looking for a 15-mile ride or a quick three-mile hike, the Royal Gorge Park will keep you exploring.
