Route 68 Photo Album

Monterey County - From Route 1 in Monterey to the Salinas River.

Leaving Monterey, the gently curving two-lane highway passes through a corridor of oak and pine trees and on into a sunny plateau with an unobstructed view of lined vistas, the route then rises abruptly to elevations of over 700 feet.

Departing this portion, a motorist is afforded a distant view of the Salina Valley and the Gabilan mountain range. The last five miles of the drive offers a magnificent stand of sycamores - Sycamore Flats - plus another change of scene created by the bottom lands of El Toro Creek.
