DRIVING FROM DENVER - there are two routes:
I-70 - Recommended route - I-70 tends to have more traffic on main travel days (Friday and Sunday afternoons). It is however, a 2-4 lane road most of the way, so it ends up being the same amount of time with passing, etc
US 285 - Less popular route - US 285 tends to have less traffic yet is only a 1 lane road most of the drive so it’s harder to pass and winds up taking just as much time as sitting in traffic on I-70.
