A "no services" sign is posted after splitting from California 127. Not only are there no services for 72 miles, the services within Death Valley National Park can be very expensive. Photo taken 11/11/08.
A mileage sign is posted along California 178 west after the intersection with California 127. The state highway does not make it all the way to Badwater or the Death Valley Visitors Center; it ends at the old Death Valley National Monument boundary line. Photos taken 11/11/08 and 01/19/02.
California 178 ends at the former Death Valley National Monument boundary. Other than the fact that this used to be the national monument boundary, this point seems like an arbitrary end to a state highway. The paved road continues into the park as Badwater Road, and it ultimately connects to California 190 to the northeast of here. Photo taken 01/19/02.
