Dramatic coastal cliffs and soaring mountains This 120 mile stretch of dramatic coastal cliffs and soaring mountains sometimes requires drivers to have superhuman self control to keep their eyes on the road.

Amazing drive. Too many places to stop with great views to count. Great weather made this drive a memorial day.

Beautiful coastal drive! Breathtaking cliff views, crashing surf, wildlife, beaches. This drive has it all. Fill up with gas before you go and bring snacks. Restaurants and convenience stores are few and far between.

We drove Hwy 1 in June, 1989. It was very foggy for most of the trip, and most of my pics came out dark. Beautiful drive!
