Note: trail is labeled "Canyon Rim", and starts across from rest area. L is out and back, R is loop. Go right if you can't do both. Easy, fun and breathtaking trail.

Took off on the trail to the R instead of the L, so ended up on the loop, but great chance to see the Royal Gorge Bridge, river & train. Look forward to the other one next time!

Very nice hike, with pretty decent views of Canon City and the Royal Gorge! Definitely try to make it during the cactus bloom as there are a ton of cacti throughout the trail!

Cheers!
