The 500 kV power line begins in the Adelanto substation, where two 500 kV lines from the San Fernando Valley and Victorville substation terminate. On top of that, this is where the Adelanto inverter station or the southern terminus of the HVDC Intermountain line (Path 27) is located. As the line leaves Adelanto substation, the 500 kV line follows Highway 395 for a distance northwest. At Kramer Junction (intersection with State Route 58), the line abruptly turns east in the Mojave Desert. The power line meets up with the other Path 46 power lines and the Intermountain DC line and the Path 64 wire parallels the transmission corridor for a distance; all of the wires at this point are heading northeast. At a certain point, the line splits off and heads east towards Interstate 15 and parallels the highway closely until Primm across the California-Nevada border, as the line heads northeast. Past the border, the Path 64 wire loosely parallels the now scattered Path 46 wires until all of these wires terminate at the Eldorado - Marketplace - McCullough substation complex. For the Path 64 wire, the line terminates at Marketplace substation, where the long Path 63 wire from Arizona terminates also.
