For possible updates contact DOT.ca.gov or 1-800.427.7623. California travelers visiting Hearst Castle and the Central California Coast have a charming alternative to the temporarily closed Highway 1 at Ragged Point, about 17 miles north of San Simeon.
Highway #46 gateway to the Central Coast is a picturesque stretch of road that extends from Highway 101 in Paso Robles and takes the traveler west to Highway 1 Discovery Route, Hearst Castle, and the bucolic coastal communities of Ragged Point, San Simeon, Cambria and Cayucos. Wineries dot both sides of Highway 46 as it meanders through lush green hills, yielding a panoramic view of Morro Rock and the Pacific Ocean from a distance atop the Santa Lucia Range, seemingly to welcome the traveler’s visit.
