Question I-5 RedBluff to Hwy 101- Any issues?

Any issues with Hwy 36 out of Red Bluff over to Hwy 101 on the coast? I'm leaving tomorrow to do the Oregon Coast. Looks like from Stockton I could take I-5 north and cut over on 36. I have a 32 ft Class A with a toad.

Is that the road around Clear lake? If so, its a decent route as long as you head south then east just before the lake. If not, you would be better off taking 199 out of Grants Pass.

Although I haven't don it, I don't think CA36 would be a good choice. There are a few routes from Stockton to US101.
From I-5 in Lodi take CA12 west to I-80, east to CA37 all the way to US101.
Another route is I-5 to Williams then west on CA20 all the way to US101.

Hwy 36 can be rough going especially after the recent storms we've just had. Take hwy. 20 (around Clear lake) to 101. I've made that trip many times. It's a piece of cake.

Just a thought, but if you're heading North on 101 then 199 would take you a considerable distance out of your way, and I would guess is not that much better than 36 or 299. I don't remember ever being on 36, but we have traveled 299, albeit a good many years ago. We travel 199 often from Phoenix, OR to the coast. Both 299 and 199 are curvy, but you should be OK on either of them. Also, 36 or 299 will take you through some beautiful Redwoods near Arcata. On 199 you will see a few of them, but not like farther South.

Have a great trip.

Steve

We drove Highway 36 eastbound to Red Bluff from 101 in a 37'er with a toad. It was an adventure. High elevation, beautiful scenery, curves, and drama. The road gets so narrow at the highest elevation, that it becomes a single lane. But there's hardly any traffic, so you can enjoy it without worrying.

Ok, 36 is out. I'll take 20 around Clear Lake.

This question comes up frequently so I saved this. Just reverse the route when going West to east.

Take Highway 20 West out of Williams. 37.1 miles. Williams is at I5 and Highway 20.

Watch for Highway 53 as you drop down a hill after a fairly long climb. Easy climb and multiple lanes.
Turn what would be South onto 53. You will go about 8 miles. Look for the sign to Highway 29 which leads to Kelseyville. This is a nice road and will become freeway in a few miles. Eventually you are back to two lane for a short distance and will come to a stop sign. You are back to Highway 20 again. This leg is about 30 miles. Turn left and enjoy the beautiful drive right to 101

This route will bypass the two lane twisting and winding on the North side of Clear lake. If you want a good view of the lake go ahead and stay on 20 all the way to 101.

I prefer this route from 101 to I-5 too. I've driven the north route across the top of the lake too, but the one to the south is much easier.

I really don't like 36, 20 or 199. I-80 to 37 to 101 is the easiest and nicest route.

Hwy 299 is one of the curviest roads I have ever travelled. I have not been over it in 20 years but cannot imagine CALTRANS improving it much.
