All day in the Redwoods.So many places to visit and so many wonderful trees to enjoy. Most stops were easy walks, even for a guy in his 70's.The trees are a marvel. Do not hesitate to take the family snd enjoy.

We were fortunate enough to be driven along this highway. What an amazing construction through such a beautiful area. It needs trying from both directions and I feel we saw it at its best with the sun shining through the majestic trees. Stunning

Loved taking this highway all through northern CA - enjoyed all the non-glamour of the old time roadside attractions and the low key vibe. We did pull out vistas and side roads to nowhere on this trip. This was so relaxing

Roads are being worked on but good. Be ready for picture taking as views happen quickly when you crest a hill for panoramas.

Most of it winds through hills, some of the road north of Ukiah goes through a narrow canyon and over small mountains, but is not bad at all, just pull out to let people pass on the narrow sections, and stay in the right... More
