Best Route from California 1 / 101 to I5

How far north can I go on Cal Hwy 1 or 101 and connect with I5 for sure before Weed ? I use Hwy 97 up to Bend , OR. Last time I tried it I got on a really sketchy road , and it took forever. Something suitable for a Moho. Many thanks

In the distant past I've driven 3 different routes I-5 to the coast in a car, 1 ( 199) north of Weed 2 south , Redding & Williams were the junctions on I-5.
None, of those 3, would be great in a MH. Checking the map for alternatives , JMHO once your north of I-80 your on your own, all winding mountain roads.

I agree. If on 101 head east on HiWay 20 just past Ukiah over to Williams on I-5. HiWay 20 is two lanes and goes on the North shore of Clear Lake for about half the trip . The rest of the way is hilly, but doable. There just aren't any way across the mountains past Ukiah though

299 near Arcata exits at Redding on I5. It is slow with lots of turns. We have done it several times with 38' MH and Jeep or Boat in tow. So it is suitable for a Moho.

The shortest route would be Hwy20 to Williams on Hwy 5.

Check out Google Maps.
