As early as the Han and Wei dynasties, the historically famous Luogu Road passed through the area of Huangtongliang in the Foping Reserve. Wei and Shu have used this road for many times with soldiers. In the 7th year of Tang Wude, Luogu Road was reopened and became a transportation hub connecting Chang'an with Hanzhong and Chengdu. In order to avoid the war, the emperors Li Shi and Li Zhang of the Tang Dynasty went to Hanzhong via this route. In the prosperous Tang Dynasty, a county was established in Huayang Town, adjacent to the reserve, with a population of 5,000 households and more than 10,000 people. "Foping Hall Records" records that in the Song Dynasty, "the famous eunuchs Zhang Zhongyong and Gong Muze in the Song Dynasty were governed in the East Jiaoxi River. Ming Min Lianhui, was buried here", "The 15th year of Ming Zhengde, Jiaoxi River won one Bailu, Xiangxuan copper everywhere, with engraving, all disappear, only Tang characters can be distinguished."
