The 101 from Eureka to Cloverdale

We are thinking about taking a 40" MH and a toad down the 101 from Eureka, CA to Cloverdale, CA.

On the map the road looks kind of windy. Looks like it is following the Eel River all the way.

My question is, what's the road like for a big rig? Is it drive-able or should we avoid it?

I have driven it many times...43' with toad. Do not go to HWY 1 as it is narrow and has far too many curves. Take your time on 101.

101 is a major north highway. you will have no problem other than "rubber necking" at all the beautiful scenery

Another vote for 101. It's very easy with a big rig. Also, do not take Hwy 1. That's altogether different!

As mentioned above. Good highway, some curves & hills but nothing to get concerned with. We travel it often as an alternative to I-5. Truckers use it when I-5 is closed for snow in the winter.

A good stop with a big rig would be Ancient Redwoods RV in Redcrest. It's right in the middle of the big trees with some awesome easy short or long hikes to do in the area. At that point you'll be weaving in and out of the highway with the redwoods at the endges. It's a neat drive!
