Highway 1 N of Ft. Bragg

I was told not to go N out of Ft. Bragg on hwy. 1. 30 ft 5th wheel. Is it really as bad as not to go that way? I want to go to the 101 on 1.

I think it would be tight but the real issue is how comfortable you are on narrow twisty roads. I was raised in the mountains in Washington and am comfortable with narrow roads and hairpin curves. I drove it a few years ago with a 28 foot motorhome and as I said tight but do able.

From responses I have had I would suggest going back California 20 to 101 and north from there. Looking at the map via Google, US1 is full of twists and turns.

Wife and I are planning to go this way this summer. I am planning on camping at the Willits intersection of Cal 20 and 101 and do a day trip in the truck to Ft. Bragg.

Yes, it's that bad and don't do it. Beautiful scenery but only for your tow vehicle.

Done it twice in a 40 ft MH towing. Puckery but doable.
