From the South: temporary-access detour
Highway 1 is currently closed at Mud Creek, 32 miles south of Ventana. While Highway 1 is being repaired, a detour is available through Nacimiento-Fergusson Road. This mountainous road, while extremely picturesque, is single-lane and windy — we recommend only driving during daylight. North access is recommended during this temporary road closure.
