Best route from Idaho Falls to Denver

Hello everyone. Have been busy moving and traveling for 6 months, and now will need a good route from Idaho Falls to Denver. The map show differences of over a hundred miles comparing the more northern routes to the lower hy.80 across. Anyone familiar with 26 to 287 to i80? Any passes there? Or do you have a better way? Not towing, but would like the safest route. Thanx! Linda

If you're taking 26 out of Idaho Falls to Alpine, then pick up 191 south to Rock Springs, WY at I-80. It's almost flat and a good highway.

There's no reason for you to take 287. You'd have to drive through Grand Teton Nat'l Park to get on it.

From Idaho Falls go south on I-15 to exit #47 (McCammon) take US 30 to the intersection with I-80 (about 6 miles west of Little America, WY) at Little America stop at the CONVENIENCE store and get your $0.75 soft ice cream cone. Go east on I-80 to Laramie, turn south on US 287 to Ft Collins. In Ft Collins go east on Co 14 about 2-3 miles to intersect with I-25, south to Denver.

You can do it in about 11 hours plus or minus. Stoping for fuel, pit stops and for food.
