CA. 36 Red Bluff to Susanville

Has anyone driven this route lately? Trying to get and stay off I-5 and am considering CA 36 if it is not to bad.

I-5 won't get you to Susanville regardless, but presuming you're just rambling around, this will take you (summer only, don't try this in winter snowy weather) thru some really pretty country. Its winding and uphill this direction, but very drivable. Have no idea about construction delays; you can check CalTrans site for info on that.

CA 36 is 140 miles of motorcycle nirvana.

Like the others said, you will be okay on Cali. 36. I've done that route several times with my 18 wheeler. Fair amount of winding road and grades, but nothing too hairy, unless it is wintertime. Yes, I've pulled off that route under crazy snow conditions as well. I defiantly would recommend daylight hours so you won't miss the scenery, and some of those curves won't seem so spooky as they do in the dark.
