South-bound view of a stretch of PCH near Laguna Beach.

Route 1 has its southern terminus at Interstate 5 south of San Juan Capistrano. From there, named as Pacific Coast Highway, it heads north into downtown Dana Point, where for one mile (1.6 km) northbound traffic continues along the original PCH alignment whilst southbound traffic is diverted onto parallel Del Prado. Once reunified as PCH, Route 1 then heads north along the coast through the beach communities of Monarch Beach, Laguna Beach and Crystal Cove. Route 1 then moves slightly inland and drops "Pacific" from its name, passing through Corona del Mar and Newport Beach as Coast Highway. It once again becomes PCH upon entering Huntington Beach, where it borders city and state beaches. It leaves Orange County after passing through Sunset Beach and Seal Beach.

PCH then enters Los Angeles County and the City of Long Beach next to the coastline and continues in a northwesterly direction to meet Lakewood Boulevard State Route 19 (and Los Coyotes Diagonal at the Long Beach Traffic Circle) more than two miles from the coast. From the traffic circle it continues inland in a westerly direction through Long Beach including approximately one mile adjacent to the southern boundary of Signal Hill. Although it does not border the coastline, State Route 1 retains the PCH name as it continues westerly through the communities of Wilmington and Harbor City and the cities of Lomita and Torrance. It then turns northerly through the cities of Redondo Beach, and Hermosa Beach. Upon entering Manhattan Beach, it becomes Sepulveda Boulevard, and continues through El Segundo and Los Angeles International Airport, directly passing underneath two runways. Route 1 then turns northwesterly shifting to Lincoln Boulevard before turning to the southwest, first as Olympic Boulevard, then as the approach to Interstate 10 in Santa Monica. Route 1 rejoins the scenic coastline in Santa Monica and continues in a westerly direction; along the Santa Monica coastline it is known locally as Palisades Beach Road. Upon leaving Santa Monica, it regains the PCH name as it continues westerly near the coast through the wealthy coastal communities of Pacific Palisades and Castellammare Beach as well as the City of Malibu.

From Malibu PCH continues along the coast through Point Mugu State Park to just beyond the park's western boundary. At that point, PCH leaves the coast and heads northerly and then northwesterly along the northeastern boundary of Naval Air Station Point Mugu for several miles and continues to Wooley Road in Oxnard. From the South Oxnard railroad grade crossing north of Statham Boulevard in Oxnard to Wooley Road, State Route 1 is known locally as Oxnard Boulevard. At Wooley Road the direction of State Route 1 changes from northwest to north; however, the Oxnard Boulevard name continues to Vineyard Avenue, Route 232. From Vineyard Avenue, State Route 1 continues north as PCH and joins U.S. Route 101 in Oxnard approximately five miles inland from the coast. It is noted that the slightly over seven-mile stretch of PCH between Calleguas Creek near the south boundary of the Point Mugu Naval Air Weapons Station and the South Oxnard railroad grade crossing north of Statham Boulevard was built to freeway standards; however, today only part of that stretch, from Calleguas Creek to Pleasant Valley Road in Oxnard, a distance of over five miles, is operating as a freeway. The remaining distance from Pleasant Valley Road to the railroad grade crossing is operating as an expressway (including three signalized intersections).

After traveling through Ventura, State Route 1 separates from US 101 to travel along the beach from Emma Wood State Beach to the Mobil Pier Undercrossing, where it rejoins US 101 about 3 miles south of the Santa Barbara County line near La Conchita. State Route 1 then merges with US 101 (although signage is nonexistent) for 54 miles, passing through Santa Barbara. Route 1, now named Cabrillo Highway, splits again from US 101 north of the Gaviota Tunnel, and heads through the coastal cities of Lompoc, Guadalupe, and Grover Beach before joining US 101 for the third time at Pismo Beach.

State Route 1 splits from US 101 at San Luis Obispo and resumes as Cabrillo Highway continuing north as a freeway through Morro Bay and Cayucos until it again becomes a winding, two lane road with occasional passing lanes. It follows along the coast past Hearst Castle and through the cliffs of Big Sur. Then several miles north, the highway crosses the scenic Bixby Creek Bridge, a reinforced concrete arch with a 320-foot span that passes over the Bixby Creek gorge, and the Rocky Creek Bridge.

From there, State Route 1 passes through Carmel before becoming a freeway in Monterey. The freeway portion of Route 1 from Route 68 (west) to Munras Avenue opened in the late 1960s. The segment from Munras Avenue in Monterey to North Fremont Blvd/Del Monte Blvd in Seaside opened in 1975, and bypasses the original highway alignment (North Fremont Blvd) through Sand City and Seaside. North of Seaside, the freeway was built over the original Highway 1 alignment through Fort Ord around 1980. North of Fort Ord, Highway 1 veers to the left of the original alignment and bypasses Marina to the west. This segment including the interchange with Route 156 and the short, 2-lane Castroville Bypass opened in the late 1980s. Originally Route 1 followed the Route 156 alignment to the Route 183 intersection in Castroville, then turned northwest, following the present-day Route 183 through Castroville before rejoining its existing alignment at the northner terminus of the Castroville Bypass.

At the interchange with California Highway 156 near Castroville, Highway 1 continues north as a 2-lane rural road to Moss Landing. Despite heavy traffic on this segment, it was not upgraded to a freeway because doing so would require cutting through a wildlife refuge area east of Moss Landing.

Before reaching Pacifica, the highway travels through a treacherous stretch where it is dubbed Devil's Slide. Here the road is in constant danger of sliding into the Pacific Ocean. This stretch of road is periodically closed, the last time from April 2, 2006 to August 3, 2006. Previous closures include about five months in 1995 and about three months in 1983.[3] To avoid these problems, a tunnel is being constructed to bypass the slide area, opening in 2011 according to Caltrans.

Highway 1 turns into a multi-lane freeway in Pacifica before joining Interstate 280 in Daly City. Highway 1 used to run along the coast between Pacifica and Daly City but this segment was damaged and rendered unusable after a 5.3 magnitude earthquake on March 22, 1957. A small stub remains near Thornton Beach. Just short of reaching the city of San Francisco, Route 1 splits from Interstate 280 and the Cabrillo Highway designation ends at the Daly City / San Francisco border, where the road becomes Junipero Serra Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, the highway makes a slight left, becoming the six-lane wide 19th Avenue where, in spite of being a city street, retains a dense traffic flow. Route 1 turns into Park Presidio Boulevard after it passes through the city's Golden Gate Park. It then joins US 101 for a fourth time on the approach to the Golden Gate Bridge known as Doyle Drive.

After crossing the bridge and entering Marin County, Highway 1 then splits from US 101 again near Marin City, where it, now as the Shoreline Highway, returns to a winding, two lane road as it goes through the coastal cities of Bodega Bay and Fort Bragg. It cuts through the center of many coastal cities and towns between these two, including Point Arena, in which it becomes Main Street, before following School Street to the northwest. Similarly, in Fort Bragg itself, the highway is known as Main Street. North of Fort Bragg, the highway follows the coast for a while, then cuts through a redwood forest, before terminating at US 101 in Leggett in Mendocino County.

The Lost Coast

Instead of terminating at Leggett, California State Highway 1 was originally planned to follow the Pacific coast even farther north from Rockport to Ferndale. But this portion was never constructed because of the steepness of the coastal mountains. The portion of Highway 1 that was completed between Ferndale and US 101 was renumbered as State Route 211. Because of the lack of highways along the coast between Rockport and Ferndale, this area has been coined as California's Lost Coast. Ferndale, California Ferndale is a city in Humboldt County, California, United States. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this articles infobox may require cleanup. ...
