    Without any sightseeing detours or stops, it's a 2 day drive via I-5, so you have just enough time to visit the redwoods.

    Take I-5 to Grants Pass, then US-199 to Crescent City. Go south on US-101, you will go right by Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and Redwood National Park. It will take you about 7 hours to get there - giving you a few hours before dark to see the parks. Eureka would be your best bet for spending the night.

    Next day, continue south on 101, and take the Avenue of the Giants through Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Just before Ukiah, take CA-20 to I-5 and take that south to LA.

    In order to get you to LA in time, you probably need to make it to at least Sacramento that night.

    Thank you so much. We do like to take part of the coast and have to take part of the I-5
