woodburn or. to sonoma ca.

Hi to everyone, we will be traveling from Woodburn Or. to Sonoma Ca. and wondered if there was a more scenic route maybe over closer to the coast as opposed to going straight down I-5? Will be traveling in 40ft Eagle with 20ft enclosed trailer. Also have some time to kill between stops so some places to stay and easy access is always a plus when you've got close to 70ft going down the road. Really not looking forward to all the hills between Medford and Redding.
Anyway thanks in advance for any suggestions, and be sure to give us a honk and a wave if you see us out there. Thanks Jeff,Lisa and Bubs.

Woodburn to Sonoma?

If I were you I'd head out to the coast at Salem and stick with 101 all the way. There are few drives as beautiful as the Oregon stretch of 101, and it's considered a pretty easy drive even for bigger setups like yours. It veers away from the coast a hundred miles or so into California- after that it's still pretty easy...some parts even four lane limited access.

This route will let you avoid all mountains except for the relatively small climb you'd make from Salem through the coast range.

if you have "done" the oregon coast and want avoid all the traffic this time of year
take i-5 to grants pass hiway 199 to crecent city and 101 the rest of the way. all good roads with the usual construction.
be sure to fuel up before california as price is much higher down there.
