I would not recommend riding up this trail. The first couple miles are nice but then the trail becomes steep and loose. However, there is Forest Service Road access to the top of Lewis Creek trail and thus the opportunity to enjoy this as a wild 6-mile downhill (a high-clearance vehicle will get you to the upper TH or ride the FRs for a heartier outing). Maybe not worth the drive per se, but if you're in the area for Lion Canyon or Tanner-Stultz, it could be a nice addition.

From Canon City, travel east to Florence and take Hwy 67 south about 10 miles to the town of Wetmore. Turn right on Hwy 96 and travel south for about 5 miles to the turnoff for Lewis Creek Trail, on the west side of the road.
To find the upper TH, from the Forest Service website: "The second trailhead is located northeast of the town of Westcliffe on Forest Service Road 315. Follow Forest Service Roads 271 to 274 and 336 to get to Forest Service Road 315."
To reach Forest Service Road 271, continue south on Hwy 96 past the lower trail head for about 10 miles. A short ways after Hwy 165 breaks off to the south, it'll be on the right.
