CA HWY 44, Redding to Susanville

Heading south next week from WA State, and many of my travel options have been cancelled due to snow in SE Oregon. So, I am looking for options from I-5 going east over the mountains to Nevada. CA 44 appears to be a decent route on the map, but not sure of elevations. ANY INPUT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. I want to get off of I-5 ASAP. Dick

don't know what your driving (pulling ?) but 36 might be easier if Susanville is your goal. but you can get snow both routes. check first. right now partly cloudy.

by the way if it were me I would take I 5 down to 80 east...
I guess in January both can be be iffy. post your driving experience if you take those routes. Elevations about 4500-5000

hit 89 at mt shasta to 44 to susanville yeah that would be a straight shot, way better.
must be why the truckers take that road. Hot creek view point is nice. think it tops out at 4500 where it crosses the pacific crest trail.

Thanks everyone. Just want to safely get over the mountains and on my way to Florida. Sometimes good to have some personal input on top of what the computer has to say.

long trip. so once you get pass the sierras/cascades mountain range are you heading south to the 10 ? I'm sitting here thinking about all the different routes to Florida depending on the season.

That's a great route. You shouldn't have a problem. Just watch the weather to be safe.

Yes, we have been doing it for years. Long drive but worth it when you get there. Last year we went to Burns, OR, then south via Winemucca. Really a good route once you get over the pass south of Burns...last years we hit snow and ice over the pass, and it doesn't sound good this year. Also, at last check, CA 89 was closed east of Shasta due to snow. Unless things change, it looks like CA 44 or 36 are the best options. Riverforest, where are you leaving from? I am in southern Washington.
