What To Expect
  • Arroyo Hondo Vista Point

    Scenic Vista

    If you forgot to bring your binoculars, no worry. Use the recently installed telescope and binoculars to scan the ocean for migrating whales and other distant objects.

    Interpretative Information Display

    The history of the Gaviota Coast is on display at this southbound turnout off Hwy 101

    Arroyo Hondo Bridge

    The bridge was built in 1918. It was the first complex bridge built by the California Highway Commission, the agency prior to Caltrans, and not by an outside construction firm. It served both directions of US 101 until 1950 when the highway was expanded, then it was reserved for southbound traffic. It was bypassed in 1984, but Caltrans wisely recognized its historical value and left it in place. It now serves as a scenic overlook.
