128 to 101

We were coming south on 101 last year and took 128 across from Geyserville to Calistoga, then south on 29 to NAPA. The road was doable, but very twisty and no way to get off and let anyone pass you, until you get to Calistoga. It is in the backyard of all the vineyards in the area. We were in a 40' bus pulling a pickup truck. No shoulder, many turns and up and down a lot. Not too much traffic, but don't know If I'd go that way again. Steve

Are you sure you mean hwy 128? I ask because I took the Leggett-to-Ft. Bragg route last year, and the route to 101 at Fort Bragg is Hwy. 20, which connects to 101 at Willits.


Both legs are twisty, and few turnouts are available. Beautiful views, though!

Leggett to Fort Bragg will wear your arms out. Do a search and you should find an hour of responses. Doable but very tight and just not fun. Unless you are going to Wages Creek to stay I would avoid it.

Ditto the above response re. Willits to Fort Bragg! Lots of hairpin turns.

Probably the toughest part, though, is that dratted (and posted) road rule that dictates that if there's even one vehicle behind you, pulling over to let it pass is required; and turnouts are mostly unmarked. There seems to be a lot of commuter traffic over that road, and people are very aggressive about sitting on your tail until you "yield".

Hwy 1 from Leggett to Fort Bragg has some sharp curves, too, but not as extreme as 20.

Per my rig size: Small car/trailer combination: thirty feet total, so much smaller than typical tug/tow.
