Going from St. Louis to salt lake city. It's been along time since I've been on I70. Usually when I go west it's either I80 or I40. How different is I70 compared to I80 in terms of hills, truck stops etc? And no I will not take I70 west of Denver!

If you're not taking 70 west of Denver you'll find there's not really anything to worry about. Parking may be a little scarce if you find yourself running later in the evening but that's about it. Terrain is hilly but it's cake compared to 70 in the mountains.

Take 70W to 29N to 80W. Best on all counts for that trip.

I much prefer i80 to i70, except Wyoming, but Colorado isn't much better. Lol
