Notes

Significance: The scenic drive is an early example of the cooperative agreement between the NPS and BPR to build quality automotive roads within the national parks. Extant features of West Rim Drive representative of these early efforts include pullouts, parking areas and road spurs which offer scenic views; easy road grades; minimal landscape headwalls and retaining walls. The entire road retains its 1935 alignment.
