State Route 127 (SR 127) is a California state highway that connects Interstate 15 to Nevada State Route 373, passing through Death Valley National Park.

This route is part of the California Freeway and Expressway System[2] and is eligible for the State Scenic Highway System[3].


Route description

The highway begins at I-15 in the community of Baker, the last town travelers from Los Angeles or Las Vegas see before making their trek across Death Valley. It ends at the California-Nevada border, where Nevada Route 373 begins. It is the "Lost Highway" featured in David Lynch's film Lost Highway.
