Oregon Coast to I5 and East

After two weeks on the coast we are considering going from Florence to I5 rather than continuing on to Coos Bay. We are looking at OR 126 to Eugene and OR 38/138 and wondering which is the better route. We are also looking at continuing east on OR 58 ot OR 138 to US 97. Not sure about that since we came north on 97 and may want to see something new. The good part would be seeing th Cascades. The alternative is continuing south on I5 then over to Susanville and on to Reno.

We are 33' with a toad.

Interested in comments relating to these routes.

We've driven both 126 and 38/138 and both are good for RVers. I would advise trying to avoid Sundays heading east. Many RVers use these highways and they'll be returning home inland.

138 is also a good highway and it will take you to Crater Lake if you haven't been there. Collier State Park on 97 just north of Chiloquin is very nice for a day trip to Crater. You could then head to 395 south for a gorgeous drive.

Have a great trip!

Thank you for the response. We did Crater Lake on the way up, assume. Think we will take 138 over though as it looks like it will offer good scenery in the Cascades.

138 runs along the river. It's pretty and forested. I'm not sure what you're expecting with the Cascades but you'll be in the southern part - not huge mountains, just forests. The Northern Cascades of Washington state east of Seattle are more striking, in my opinion. But it's all beautiful. Enjoy the drive!
