Road from mt. Shasta to reno

On the road tomorrow from Portland, OR. Are the roads southeast of I-5 at Mt. Shasta, thru Lassen, to Reno, safe for 41 feet plus a toad? What about the twists and turns, and the hills?

We could go south to Sacramento then take the 80 east, but would prefer the scenic route. Thanks for your advice!

Highway 89 out of Mt. Shasta is good. Check weather conditions , could hit a storm in the Sierras. Good all the way to Reno.

Hwy 89 towards Susanville then down to Reno is a good highway. The only drawback is if you get behind a loaded log truck or semi. Not much in the way of passing lanes but that's only a problem if you are in a hurry. We use that route several times a year towing without problem. I think weather is good this week. And, no problem for a 41 foot with a toad.

Thanks again! No hurry, no worries! I like to set the cruise to 58MPH (yep!) cos that's where I get the best MPG, so the log trucks will be behind me wish'n there was a passing lane!

Inquire locally when you get close , the road through Lassen Park, is sometimes closed in winter, it's been years since I was on the route through the park, but had to turn around in early may, because the road was only open from the south as far as the ski hill.

The road condition is good. Here is a westbound view of Mt. Shasta from Hwy 89 near McCloud, CA
