California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (2022)

These seven California drives are guaranteed to make you say "Wow!" — And say it more than once. They're the best places you can go for a short road trip in California, journeys where you will measure progress by photos per mile rather than miles per hour.

If you take them all, you will see waves crashing on coastal cliffs and drive beneath trees that are the tallest living things on earth. You will travel over high mountain passes, through valleys with floors a mile high, feeling small in comparison to the mountains that soar 10,000 feet above you. You will cross the desert through aWorld Biosphere Reserve and see the lowest place in North America.

All of these road trips are between 100 and 180 miles long, short enough to do in a single day and interesting enough to turn into multi-day trips. In fact, you could string them all together to make the ultimate one- to two-week California road trip vacation. You cansee where they are on this handy Google map.

Before you get started, take a little time to go old school. While all of these routes have fantastic views, they can take you far from the nearest cell phone tower. Before you hop in the car, download a map to your mobile device or get one printed on paper.

Big Sur: From Carmel to Morro Bay

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (1)

California Highway 1 between Morro Bay and Carmel-by-the-Sea is the best drive in California. And it may just be the most famous 155 miles in the world. It's undoubtedly the most photographed, talked about and dreamed aboutroute in the Golden State.

It's all about the scenery on the Big Sur drive, with the highway tracing the curvaceous coastline and the Pacific Ocean crashing on the rocks below.

Driving on this road can be nerve-wracking. Some of the turns are so tight you'll feel like you can see your own taillights. That iswhen you're not fretting about whether you're going to veer off the road and end up in the ocean at the bottom of those sheer cliffs. To minimize that drama, start in Morro Bay and drive north which puts your vehicle on the land side of the highway.

The 120-mile distance seems short, but photo opportunities, hairpin turns, and slow-moving drivers combine to make the trip take up to twice as long as you might expect.

The best time to go is in spring and fall when the sky is the clearest. In summer, the coast is subject to coastal fog called June Gloom, the road gets crowded, and there are few places to pass those slow-moving vehicles. In winter, mudslides can close Highway 1 for weeks to months at a time. Before you set out, check the road conditions on the CalTrans website and find out what you can do instead if it's closed.

Where to Stop

You canfind all the best stops and points of interest in the guide to driving Highway One through Big Sur.

If you want to make this trip in two days, you'll want to spend more time in Morro Bay. You can also spend a day or more exploring Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Places to stay are scarce except around the Big Sur village area where you can find plenty of inns and campgrounds.

What You Need to Know

You can find food and restrooms at Ragged Point, Gorda and in Big Sur village. Purchase gasoline in either Carmel or Morro Bay. If you're driving an electric vehicle, charge up in Big Sur village or Cambria (75 miles apart).

If you or your companions are prone to motion sickness, be prepared. Try these remedies or take the wheel which helps many people avoid the problem.

The highway is a paved, two-lane road suitable for all passenger vehicles. You can take large RVs and travel trailers on it, but most people who have tried that say they won't do it again.

The High Sierras: Bridgeport to Lone Pine

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (2)

Between Bridgeport and Lone Pine, the 150-mile stretch of US Highway 395 passes through a landscape that looks like it was torn from the pages of National Geographic magazine. In the fall when the aspen trees turn golden, it’s arguably the most beautiful drive in California.

One of the delights of 395 is the diversity of landscapes you can see just by looking out your window.You'll travel through the broad, high Owens Valley with the Sierra Nevada mountains on the west side and the White and Inyo Mountains on the east. You'll even be able to see Mount Whitney, the highest summit in the contiguous United States with an elevation of 14,505 feet (4,421 meter).

Fall is the most spectacular season to make the drive. In the spring, you may see wild iris and other wildflowers blooming beside the highway. Summer is also fine, with moderate temperatures and lots of sunshine. In the winter, the areagetssnow, which makes themountains beautiful but can make the driving difficult.

Where to Stop

Must-see sights along Highway 395 include Mono Lake and its unique tufa rock formations, Devil's Postpile outside Mammoth, Convict Lake, June Lake, and the Manzanar National Historic Site (a World War II Japanese internment camp).

If you make this trip in two days, you can also take side trips to see the west's best-preserved ghost town at Bodie State Historic Park, and the bubbling, turquoise-colored mineral springs at Hot Creek.

Bishop is an excellent place to stop, but you can also find lodging in Lee Vining, Mammoth Lakes, June Lake, and Lone Pine.

What You Need to Know

Food, gasoline, and restrooms are available in most of the towns along 395. Most of them also have electric vehicle charging points with at least a few stations.

The highest point on this drive is Conway Summit which is 8,138 feet (2,480 m) high, enough to cause altitude sickness in some people.

The main highway is suitable for any type of vehicle. Passenger vehicles can use the unpaved road to Bodie ghost town, but it is famous for its bumps and potholes. A few of the side trips in the Highway 395 guide are accessed by dirt roads that are passable in a passenger vehicle (although you may come out covered in dust).

Highway 1 North: San Francisco to Fort Bragg

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (3)

The Big Sur coast is justifiably famous and jaw-droppingly scenic, but it isn't the only part of California Highway 1 that offers views so gorgeous you might not believe they're real.

The 180-mile drive between San Francisco and Fort Bragg on Highway 1 offers scenery and lots of places to stop and explore, from charming villages that look they should be in New England to cliffside vista points so far above the ocean they could give you vertigo.

The best time to go is in spring and fall when the sky is the clearest. In summer, the coast is subject to coastal fog called June Gloom. The highway can sometimes be closed for repairs, especially in the winter. Check for closures and other road conditions at the CalTrans website before you go.

Between those points of interest, you'll be high above the ocean's edge. You can find out about everything else along the way in theguide to traveling Highway 1 north.

There's enough to enjoy on this route that it would also make a multi-day trip. You can find places to stay in most of the towns you pass through.

What You Need to Know

Gasoline, food, and restrooms are also available at most of the towns on Highway 1. Many of them also have electric vehicle chargers with at least a few stations.

If winding, clifftop roads make you or your companions nervous, drive from south to north, which will keep your vehicle on the inside of all the curves.

From the Beach to the Desert: San Diego to Palm Springs

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (4)

If you're driving from San Diego to Palm Springs, don't let your GPS or navigation app take you on a boring drive on busy interstate highways. Instead, take control of your route to travel through the Cuyamaca Mountains, visit a gold rush town from the 1870s, and descend to the desert to explore aWorld Biosphere Reserve.

Fall, winter, and spring are all great times to go. Between October and January, you can see up to 400 species of migratory birds around the Salton Sea — almost half of those known in North America. In the spring, you might catch the wildflowers at Anza-Borrego. Fall is apple season in the town of Julian. In the summer, desert temperatures are so high that you won't want to get out of your air-conditioned vehicle — but hotel rates in the desert cities will be low.

Where to Stop

Along the way, stop inJulian, a tiny gold rush town that's a good place to shop for antiques and get a slice of apple pie made from fruit grown in the nearby orchards.

On the east side of the mountains is Anza-Borrego, California's largest state park and aWorld Biosphere Reserve. For a quick visit, stop at the desert garden outside the visitor center which is a concentrated version of the park's entire 600,000 acres. Or go into depth andexplore all the things you can do in Anza-Borrego.

At the town of Borrego Springs,detour west on Highway S22. Before long, you'll be rubbing your eyes in disbelief when you start seeingsome of the more than 100 metal sculptures scatteredover 10 square miles. Created by sculptorRicardo Brecedafor Dennis Avery (of the Avery label company), theBorrego Springs sculpture gardeninclude mammoths, wild horses, giant sloths, camels, birds of prey and saber-tooth tigers.

Continuing toward Palm Springs, you'll come to the Salton Sea, a body of water that covers almost 350 square miles of the California desert, is twice as salty as the Pacific Ocean, and is disappearing fast. From a distance, it looks like a mirage, an optical illusion formed by shimmering heat waves rising from the desert floor. .

If you want to take the trip in two days, you could stay overnight in Julian or Borrego Springs.

What You Need to Know

Food, gasoline, and restrooms are available in Julian and Borrego Springs, and you can also find restrooms at the Anza-Borrego visitor center. If you are driving an electric vehicle with a range of fewer than 200 miles, check ahead for charging stations along your route.

To take control of that GPS, map your trip in sections. If you're starting from San Diego, don't type Palm Springs into your mapping app. Set it for Julian instead. When you get there, navigate to Borrego Springs. Then plot a route to Palm Springs using the Interstate or take California Highway 111 which goes through the desert towns south of Palm Springs. If you're starting in Palm Springs, do the reverse: Borrego Springs, then Julian, then San Diego.

This drive is suitable for any type of vehicle, although it has quite a few hilly, curving sections. In the summer, be sure your vehicle is capable of handling high temperatures and check your fluid levels.

Redwood Highway: Oregon Border to Leggett

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (5)

Northern California's Redwood Highway takes you through the home of some of the most spectacular trees on earth. They cluster in groves, growing as tall as 300 to 350 feet and spanning 16 to 18 feet across.

The 175-mile route also passes some of Northern California's most dramatic coastal scenery. Between the redwood groves, you can spot elk, hike through a canyon filled with ferns, or stop to see the famous Chandelier Tree where you can actually drive your car through its trunk.

You can do basic drive between Leggett and the Oregonborder in a day. If you have more time, take a few side trips. You can travel back in time in Ferndale (a village full of charming Victorian-era homes), watch the waves crash on offshore rocks, or take a photo of yourself next to an oversized statue of Paul Bunyan and his pal Babe the Blue Ox.

You can enjoy this drive any time of year. Winter can be rainy, but snow is rare.

Where to Stop

If you only see one thing along the Redwood Highway, it should be Jedediah Smith State Park. The 6-mile drive through the park on Howland Hill Road is a must if you have never been in an unspoiled redwood forest. It's not suitable for all vehicles, though.

What You Need to Know

You're never far from a service station, a place to eat or a restroom on the highway. Expect to find more amenities in the larger towns. Electric vehicle charging stations may be difficult to find, making it a good idea to search for their locations before you start your trip.

Highway 101 is suitable for any vehicle, including large RVs and travel trailers, even on a side drive through the Avenue of the Giants.

If the hard-packed gravel road has been graded recently, it's passable for a family sedan, but conditions can vary from smooth to deeply rutted. Check conditions at one of the park's visitor centers entrance in Crescent City and near the Hiouchi entrance.

California Scenic Drives: 7 Routes That Will Make You Swoon (6)

There's a lot more to Yosemite National Park than just the famous valley. On this drive, you'll also see alpine meadows, crystal-clear lakes, and get a bird's eye view of Yosemite Valley from above.

The 100-mile route starts in the foothill town of Mariposa, climbs into the mountains and through the Yosemite Valley alongside the Merced River. Don't give in to temptation and spend all your time visiting the valley unless you have more than one day to make the trip. Instead, drive over the mountains through Tioga Pass to see Yosemite's high country.

To su najbolja mjesta na koja možete otići na kratko putovanje u Kaliforniji, putovanja na kojima ćete mjeriti napredak fotografijama po milji, a ne kilometrima na sat.. Ako ih uzmete sve, vidjet ćete kako valovi padaju na obalne litice i zabijaju se ispod drveća koje je najviše živo biće na zemlji.. Prije nego što krenete, provjerite stanje na cestama na web mjestu CalTrans i saznajte što umjesto toga možete učiniti ako je zatvoreno.. Najviša točka na ovoj vožnji je vrh na Conwayu, koji je visok 2.480 m, dovoljno da kod nekih ljudi izazove visinsku bolest.. 180 kilometara vožnje između San Francisca i Fort Bragga na autocesti 1 nudi krajolik i mnoštvo mjesta za zaustavljanje i istraživanje, od šarmantnih sela koja izgledaju kao da bi trebala biti u Novoj Engleskoj, do vidikovca na liticama toliko daleko iznad oceana da bi vam mogli dati vrtoglavicu .. Najbolje je zaustaviti se u Point Reyesu kako biste vidjeli jedan od najživopisnijih svjetionika na obali, maleni gradić Marshall u kojem možete uživati ​​u ostrigama svježim iz oceana i grad Mendocino iz knjige priča.

There's hardly anything more quintessentially awesome than a good old-fashioned road trip.

The National Parks Service calls this route "America's favorite drive," and there's no better time to embark on the Blue Ridge Parkway than during the fall.. This parkway is not actually a national park itself, but it does, however, connect two national parks together: Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina.. The Berkshires tourism website features several different road trip routes to drive in October, but one of them is a scenic ride on Route 8, which winds its way to the top of Massachusetts' highest peak, Mount Greylock, ablaze in fall colors this time of year.. Most of the millions of visitors who flood into Great Smoky Mountains National Park each year see its scenery by driving the mountain-skimming highway that runs through the park, National Geographic says .. Anyone would agree that the Rocky Mountains are breathtaking at any time of the year; the road that winds through this alpine desert runs along the tops of Colorado's most majestic peaks, past patches of ice and snow (even in the summertime) and high-country lakes, and crossing paths with wild elks, moose, mountain goats, and marmots.. Along the route, road trippers will run into the largest private ski resort in all of North America, HoliMont , not to mention plenty of frozen-over lakes to skate on and cozy fireplaces to curl up next to on this seven-day drive.. Much like Arches National Park, Utah's Zion National Park just down the road is another desert oasis that is scorching hot (and flooded with tourists) during the summer, but quiet, peaceful, and sometimes even snowy during the winter.

Todo lo que necesita para disfrutar de los recorridos más pintorescos de California, desde las playas hasta el desierto y las montañas. Incluye rutas, paradas y consejos.

Las visitas obligadas a lo largo de la carretera 395 incluyen el lago Mono y sus formaciones rocosas de toba únicas, Devil's Postpile a las afueras de Mammoth, Convict Lake, June Lake y el Sitio Histórico Nacional Manzanar (un campo de internamiento japonés de la Segunda Guerra Mundial).. Se accede a algunos de los viajes laterales en la guía de la Carretera 395 por caminos de tierra que son transitables en un vehículo de pasajeros (aunque puede salir cubierto de polvo).. Las mejores paradas son en Point Reyes para ver uno de los faros más pintorescos de la costa, la pequeña ciudad de Marshall, donde puedes disfrutar de ostras recién sacadas del océano, y la ciudad de cuentos de Mendocino.. En su lugar, tome el control de su ruta para viajar a través de las montañas de Cuyamaca, visite una ciudad de la fiebre del oro desde la década de 1870 y descienda al desierto para explorar una Reserva Mundial de la Biosfera.. En el camino, deténgase en Julian, una pequeña ciudad de la fiebre del oro que es un buen lugar para comprar antigüedades y obtener una rebanada de pastel de manzana hecho con frutas cultivadas en los huertos cercanos.. Creado por el escultor Ricardo Breceda para Dennis Avery (de la marca Avery), el jardín de esculturas de Borrego Springs incluye mamuts, caballos salvajes, perezosos gigantes, camellos, aves de presa y tigres dientes de sable.. Entre las arboledas de secoyas, puede divisar alces, caminar a través de un cañón lleno de helechos, o detenerse para ver el famoso Árbol de araña donde puede conducir su automóvil a través de su tronco.. Puedes viajar al pasado en Ferndale (un pueblo lleno de encantadoras casas de la época victoriana), ver las olas rompiendo en las rocas frente a la costa o tomar una foto tuya junto a una gran estatua de Paul Bunyan y su amigo Babe, el buey azul.. Verifique las condiciones en una de las entradas de los centros de visitantes del parque en Crescent City y cerca de la entrada de Hiouchi.. La ruta de 100 millas comienza en la ciudad de las estribaciones de Mariposa, sube a las montañas y atraviesa el valle de Yosemite a lo largo del río Merced.. Puede utilizar la guía del clima y clima de Death Valley para elegir una época del año en que las temperaturas le convengan.Algunas personas disfrutan del verano en el Valle de la Muerte, pero puede hacer tanto calor que esas chanclas baratas de la tienda del dólar podrían derretirse y pegarse al pavimento si te quedas quieto por mucho tiempo.. Si desea convertir este viaje en un viaje de dos días, puede quedarse en uno de los hoteles del Valle de la Muerte o traer su equipo y quedarse en uno de los campamentos.
