An interstate running through a canyon isn't commonplace!!
However, one great example is the I-70 that runs through Glenwood Canyon that was carved by the mighty Colorado River.
The scenery is magnificent, with the towering rocky walls on both sides of the freeway.
There are a few pullout stops open to the public. Make sure to turn off into all of them!!
There are boardwalks, bridges (and restrooms....), enabling access to the river itself and to nice viewpoints.
We Loved It!! So Will You!!

An amazing, exciting drive through a long canyon area. There was a rest stop where you could take a nice stroll. The walls of the canyon were very high. I didn't get any photos because I was alone and there were no pulloffs on the interstate. I wish I had a dash camera.

Absolutely stunning Canyon with the Colorado River running through it. We loved our visit in spite of the fact that most of the area we wanted to see was closed due to flash flooding and mudslides. We would love to return again one day and spend the day there.

This is a great drive thru an fantastic canyon. The hike and bike trail was closed when we were here, but the views are still amazing from the car. The Colorado River runs along the interstate here and has carved a deep canyon.

Despite the fire that struck the area on the fall of 2020, it is still worth your time.

There is a nice walking and bike path through most of Glenwood Canyon. While much of it follows I-70, some of the trail winds away from the road for more peaceful and nature filled walk. You feel amazingly small as you walk near the Colorado River deep in the canyon. Very enjoyable!

This is a beautiful drive, but to really appreciate the canyon & take photos, stop at the rest-stops and walk in either (or both) direction on the bike path. It's paved, mostly level, and when I was there, only a few bikes passed by (give them room!). You can walk as far as you like, or as long as your time allows. It's unfortunate that an interstate and a railroad were built in this national treasure (there is traffic noise), but that can't be changed now.

Came to Gl Sp based on info from web after I passed thru town a couple of years ago by train. Fabulous outdoor area and easy to rent bikes, ww rafting, and hiking all readily available. Great family spot but not for small children

We drove west on I-70 toward Glenwood Springs and were in total amazement of the canyon along the drive. Each twist and turn of the road we would catch ourselves saying "WOW". The canyon walls are tall (up to 1300') and rugged and follow the Colorado River as it winds through the canyon. I wish we had stopped along the way to enjoy the beauty more.
We talked to a woman at our hotel that had ridden the train from Denver to Glenwood Springs and said that it was amazing going through the canyon that way. Hmmm!

Make sure to have a second driver so you can see some of the wonders in Glenwood canyon, we went both ways so each driver got to see this area without getting into trouble trying to look and drive!

We drove through at sunset on our way to Glenwood Springs from Denver. Just WOW! We stopped at a rest area beside the river and took pictures. The drive is about 12 miles long and is spectacular the whole way.
