An easy out and back trail with some cool tunnels carved in the rock and some beautiful views of the Arkansas River.

Took this easy hike with my son and it def was a nice walk. The tunnels were cool and a bit scary with the very clear signs about cave ins.

It's a pretty walk. It'll be much nicer once they connect tunnel drive to the Canyon rim Trail.

Very nice easy hike, great for when mom comes to visit! Uphill at first but levels out soon enough. Would be great for running!

Beautifully scenic, very easy, trail along the Arkansas River on the edge of Canon City. Great for children, pets, and hikers of all skill levels. What impressed me most were 1) it is accessible for the disabled for its full 2-mile length - I passed a gentleman in a wheelchair who was being pushed by another man, in the company of several other jolly women and men - and 2) how well maintained it is. If you time your hike right (I started at noon), you can see the Royal Gorge Train meandering along the bank of the river - a treat for kids. Additionally, the Tunnel Drive Trail connects with the River Walk Trail, for those hikers who would like to do them both in tandem.

Awesome trail, easily accessible and most importantly, DOG FRIENDLY. The trail features beautiful wild flowers, a couple of tunnels, some really pretty rock formations, several benches and picnic tables conveniently located at all of the scenic outlooks.
The entire length of the trail runs parallel to the Arkansas river. I would rate this trail as easy, almost effortless. Very beautiful and enjoyable, I will definitely be a repeat hiker!
