Take I-25 south to Colorado Springs. At Colorado Springs, take exit 140B onto Highways 85 South and 115 South. Continue South on Highway 115 to Highway 50. Turn right (west) on Highway 50 through Canon City. On the west side of Canon City Highway 50 goes up a long, steep hill. Go over the hill, staying on Highway 50 (don't turn on the road to the Royal Gorge Bridge). At the bottom of the hill, Highway 50 crosses the Arkansas River. (This is the Parkdale Bridge and it is about ½ mile west of highway mile post 268).
