We camped in the Rush Creek Campground, the road was a little rough but it was very peaceful and the sound of running water made it easy to sleep.

For locals, it's simply the primary way to get from the Sacramento Valley to the North Coast, but if you've never tried it, it's a wonderfully scenic trip through mixed evergreen forest; open, hilltop prairies; past quaint and colorful hamlets; and finally into the redwood...More

This place exceeded our expectations! The day we came we had sunny and a bright blue sky. The pictures turned out fantastic with the contrast of crystal clear blue/green water and majestic trees and mountains. With a ride for the day or week.

Fun, delightful place and great food at reasonable prices!! Do not pass on the sausage and gravy biscuits! Really enjoyed this restaurant! Right on the Main St., it is the best!

The scenery is lovely but the road is very winding so slow down to enjoy the view. Not as pretty as Alaska (where I live) but lovely nonetheless. Enjoyed the slower pace, vistas and fresh air.

While I would have preferred the ride on two wheels it is nevertheless a very scenic ride in a car too. I love water and the rivers around here are gorgeous.

We drove through on business but the gorgeous scenery and snowy mountains made it a vacation! Hazardous driving in the snow I'm sure but this is country not to be missed. Absolutely beautiful with lots of recreation in good weather.

There are several small towns along the way, but you should have at least a half tank of gas before you start as there is nothing available through the mountain passes. We had that and needed to gas up in Trinity before... More
