In 1905, Colorado state senator Edward T. Taylor said, "I hope that someday our road will be a portion of a grand boulevard stretching across the nation." Taylor referred to the 12.5-mile gorge known as Glenwood Canyon. Today, the canyon road is the most celebrated section of the interstate highway system in the United States.

For the history of the road's construction, the region's ecosystem, and highlights of the canyon's history, stop at any one of the canyon's four full-service rest areas and recreational hubs: Bair Ranch, Hanging Lake. Grizzly Creek, and No Name.
