Nestled in Fremont County and minutes from Canon City, you’ll come upon the Royal Gorge and marvel at her wonders, graced as she is with the highest suspension bridge in the world, the world’s steepest incline railway, and the only railway that runs through the daunting Gorge. Dinosaur parks where archaeologists still make discoveries are here. Add to that over 1 million acres of National Forest, 700 trails, biking, horseback riding, skydiving, helitours, spectacular whitewater rafting and world-class Brown Trout fishing, and you have a glimpse of the adventure that awaits you in the Royal Gorge.
Home to the famous Royal Gorge Wars of the 1880’s and the silver rush that gripped a Nation from the bed of the Arkansas, the Royal Gorge and nearby Canon City is rich in American history.
