The even smaller town of Cholame is about six miles northeast of Shandon, where the two highways diverge again. The San Andreas Fault cuts perpendicular to the highways here, six miles from Shandon.

Grasslands and low hills surround the town, with the area immediately southwest of town being an agricultural region.
