Scotty’s Castle Road
Scotty’s Castle Road heads in a generally northwest direction from California Highway 190, before turning briefly northeast towards Scotty’s Castle itself and the park boundary. This is a long, fast road through a very remote area.
Mile 0 – CA-190 Junction
The Scotty’s Castle Road begins at its junction with CA-190.
Mile 0.6 – Daylight Pass Road
The Daylight Pass Road heads off to the right. This road crosses the Nevada border shortly before leaving the park and becomes NV-374.
Mile 15.1 – Titus Canyon Road
The unpaved Titus Canyon Road is on the right.
Mile 33.2 – Mesquite Spring Campground
The access road to the Mesquite Spring Campground is on the left.
Mile 33.6 – Entrance Station
The road passes through an entrance station. If it is staffed, the park entrance fee must be paid or a valid pass shown. A ranger station is also here.
Mile 33.8 – Ubehebe Crater Road
The side road to Ubehebe Crater is on the left. This road leads 5 miles to the crater, which was created when a type of volcano called a marr volcano exploded. It is a very scenic, and often VERY windy area. It was actually hard to remain standing on our visit in June 2007.
Mile 36.8 – Scotty’s Castle
Scotty’s Castle itself is on the left. This extremely out-of-place mansion is one of the most visited places in the park, and if you have time to take the guided tour, is a stop well worth making. The story of how the castle came to be is best told by the NPS guide as you tour the home.
Mile 40.2 – Park Boundary & Nevada Line
The road leaves the park at the Nevada state line and becomes NV-267.
