Route 66 by State
The end of trail.
The stretch of Route 66 that passes through California extends from the Colorado River near Needles, all the way to the Pacific Ocean at Santa Monica. Traveling through deserts, mountains, ghost towns, metropolitan areas, and beach communities, California’s 320 miles of the Mother Road provide a wide variety of geography, cultures, architecture, and photographic opportunities.
That’s it, we made it! After nearly 2,450 miles on the most legendary road of the continent, after the skyscrapers of Chicago, Illinois, the prairies of the Ozarks, Missouri, the Indian Territory of Oklahoma, Texas cowboys, old stones of New Mexico and the arid landscapes of Arizona, we are about to cross the mythical California border.
