  1. Default Road trip LA to San Francisco

    Hi guys,

    I absolutely love this forum and I spent the last hour searching through all the posts!!

    I would love to take a LOOP road trip (7days) from Los Angeles to San Francisco...

    We were thinking about hitting these spots:

    Santa Barbara
    San Francisco
    Napa Valley

    and on the way back we are open to suggestions as I dont know the best routes.. Maybe

    Yosemite National Park
    Sequoia National Park ( to go rafting on Kern river)

    Do you guys have any suggestions re: where to stop, what to do, ..etc...

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You could certainly create a nice loop from LA to SF to LA and hit the spots you mention. You won't be able to stay in any one spot for too long but it'll make for a nice drive with some sight seeing.

    The Kern river runs in the Sequoia National forest from Kernville, just North of Lake Isabella, but is a lovely drive through Camp Nelson to Exeter. It would still be possible to go in the National park along the "Generals highway" [198] through Three rivers, and although very scenic, they are slow and twisty mountain roads. There are lodgings around Lake Isabella and Three rivers, for Yosemite, Oakhurst has some reasonably priced accommodation, as you get closer, or into the park you can pay a premium. From Monterey, Cambria and Cayucos are popular for an overnight stop and would give you plenty of time around Big Sur and perhaps Hearst castle.

    If you took the inland route heading North, when heading South down the coast, the Ocean and scenic pull outs will be on your side of the road.
