Maps of the
Pacific Coast Highway

Good road maps of the Pacific Coast Highway are obviously essential for anyone planning to drive the trip. At the bottom of the page we've put an interactive Google map which shows just the stretch of road between Dana Point and Oxnard that is officially designated the Pacific Coast Highway.

But we don't believe in re-inventing the wheel. There is already an excellent website which provides free downloadable maps of the Pacific Coast Highway section by section.

Click on the links below, to see some of the Pacific Coast Highway maps that are available. We've listed those for the California coast, the 'real' Pacific Coast Highway. If you want PCH maps of Oregon and Washington, go to the Mile by Mile website and you'll find them. We don't want to list them all again here, when we didn't do them in the first place. So take a look at these:

Here's a map showing the route of the official Pacific Coast Highway, between Dana Point and Oxnard. You can click on the link below the map to open it in a separate window, where you can zoom in and examine the route in more detail. The only change we've made is that PCH stops in Oxnard, but we've extended it a short way to take you to where California State Route 1 joins US Route 101, and the two become one and the same route, carrying both numbers.
