  1. Default Getting from Crescent City to Eugene-Options?

    I'm taking a roadtrip this weekend and wondering the pros/cons of route options getting from Crescent City 101 to Eugene I-5.

    Scenario:

    Sunday drive

    departing Crescent City around 5am-6am, aiming to get to Eugene around 12pm-2pm.

    want:

    scenery, funky little roadstops, spirited driving

    avoiding:

    too much Sunday traffic or potential long road delays, boring highways


    Can anyone suggest which route? I have up to 8 hours from start to finish budgeted and I'd like to get to a festival in Marcola, OR for a nice 4-5 hours before going back home up north.

    Default "Spirited Driving...."

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! By the most direct route, it is about 225 miles and would take about four hours. Since you have packaged a driving time of nearly seven hours -- you do have some options.

    I am assuming that if you state "spirited driving" that you are an accomplished mountain road driver? If so, there is a great road, you might enjoy. Drive the normal approach on US-199 but turn south when you see the signs for Page Mountain Snopark. (Waldo Road) and follow that to County Road 48 (State of Jefferson Highway) to Happy Camp and then turn east on CA-96 and follow that to I-5. Great roads! It will take you a couple of hours to drive this -- but you will never forget it.

    Alternatively, you can drive US-101 to Reedsport and then OR-38 to Eugene (about 5-6 hours)

    Hope that helps.
