Whether hiking, biking, or trail running, individuals of all ages and abilities will find themselves awestruck at the beauty of 'Colorado's Natural Wonder' - the Royal Gorge and Arkansas River.
In early 2019, the City of Cañon City voted to pay for the refurbishment of two historic train trestles on City property. Previously used by the Point Alta Vista Scenic Railway, the trestles were abandoned after the railway shut down in 2012 after 52 years of service. Business and new property owner of the former Buckskin Joe town, Ty Seufer has pledged to refurbish and re-deck the three trestles that lie on his property. Seufer's property shares a boundary with the Royal Gorge Park property, and privately-constructed trails on the new Royal Gorge Ranch & Resort will link up with public trails.
Also spanning the two properties are a wealth of climbing and bouldering areas. Seufer plans to add slacklining facilities to the list of adventure amenities within the Royal Gorge Park area.
