  1. Default Puget Sound, WA to Mendocino Coast - need trip advice

    Hello all,

    I am planning a solo run with a truck and horse trailer from the Puget Sound down to Point Arena, CA on the Mendocino Coast. There are a couple of options for that route and I need in-the-know advice about the best way to go. Down 5 to Medford and then out to coastal hwy 101/1 or down 5 towards Redding and cut over through Clear Lake area. Liening toward the first option because second adds 75 miles and if I remember correctly that way isn't much less curvy and maybe even worse...suggestions please!

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd recommend you stay on I-5 to Williams, then take CA-20 all the way across to CA-1. You have to cross the coast range somewhere, and CA-20 is probably the easiest run till you get to Santa Rosa.

    My map shows that if you go south on 101 from CA-20, you can get across on CA-253 but I'd definitely get some local info first, it looks pretty bad on my map.
