Scenic & Historic Byways

Colorado has 25 scenic and historic “byways,” routes designated for their extra-special scenery or historical value. The Colorado Dept. of Transportation oversees the byways program, and you can see photos and information on each byway at the program website. This year, the program celebrated its 20th birthday.

Our library has a number of resources on Colorado’s Scenic and Historic Byways, including:
