This scenic mile-high road completed in 1928 was conceived, promoted, surveyed and built under the direction of William H. Kendall who was employed by the U. S. Forest Service from 1907 to 1931.

Before the road was built Kendall was hunting in the backcountry and was shot in the shoulder by a hunting partner. He nearly died, having to be carried several miles to the nearest road by rescuers from Dayton. Mr. Kendall was fortunate, the one who mistook him for a deer was Dr. W. W. Day, who's emergency treatment probably saved his life.
