  1. Default New to forum: S.F. To Bend, OR

    Hi, i just found your website and I wanted to see if anyone has ever driven from San Francisco to Bend, Oregon during December...more specifically during the days before Christmas until New Years. My family and I are planning on visiting relatives in S.F this year and wanted to take a road trip to Bend but have never been up there during the winter months. Does anyone know the fastest route to take? Does it snow a lot driving up? Are there any road closures we will need to worry about because of the snowfall? Thanks so much for your help!

    The fastest route is I-5 to US-97. You are looking at 500 miles, and if the weather is decent you can easily do this in 1 day - 9+ hours.

    Nobody can predict the specific weather and road conditions in advance, but here is the Caltrans real time road reports and here is the real time Oregon reports.
