[Photo of Western Terminus] Welcome to California! The Lincoln Highway in the Golden State follows a variety of paths. While exploring the highway, you may find yourself on the 1913–27 route through the San Joaquin Valley and the Altamont Pass, or on the 1927–28 route across the Carquinez Strait. The Lincoln Highway guided travelers through both the Donner Pass and Echo Summit in the Sierras. You'll never run out of adventures or surprises on these routes. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
