Hwy 101 Eureka to I-5 Redbluff via Hwy 36?

I'm looking to take a different route back home from the Oregon coast to SoCal this year. I usually take 101 down through the redwoods and cut across to I-5 via Hwy 20. I'm thinking about cutting across on Hwy 36 and wondering if anyone has any recent experience with this route?

While I have not been on this route, I guess I would say it depends a lot on what you are driving. We took route 299 from Reading to Eureka in our mini van a few years back and I would not want to do it in our RV with a towed car. Just looking at the map, it looks challenging.

I'm in Brookings Oregon right now, I think I'll take 199 across from Crescent City. I've been on that route before. Some say 199 is too tight, but I found it a pleasant drive last time I drove it. My rig is about 48 feet including toad.

You'll be fine on 199. I agree that 299 would not be a good choice.

36 is very fun...on a motorcycle. 140 miles of curves!

Thanks to all for the help. Made it to Weed Ca this evening. Glad I went north on 199 after hearing all the comments. Driving up the side of Smith river was breath taking, really only about 5-8 miles of tight curves, all the rest was smooth sailing.
