Northern California itinerary help please?

Jump to last reply

Landing in San Fran 9/24. Have car rental already. We want to stay in Sausalito that night. From there we want to go thru Napa, stay in/near Geyserville/Cloverdale. Then travel to Mendiceno via Hwy 128 - probably plan to stay there for 2 nights.

Then north to Humbolt National Forest, staying one night? Then north to Redwood National Forest, staying ?one night? Then back south to Santa Rosa, and back to SanFran. Our flight out is mid-day Saturday Oct 5th. We'd like to have a couple days in San Francisco at the end.

looking for suggestions about how long to stay or allow for travel to/from each area? Suggestions for any unique things to do - we would like to visit a couple of wineries but that's not the main focus of the trip - the scenery is. We do plan to try and kayak in Mendicino. We are in our 60's and pretty active, but no more hiking than a couple miles max per day. We do not have any reservations for lodging yet since we kind of like to poke along and be somewhat spontaneous. Trying to keep lodging under 200.00/night average if possible. Any thoughts, suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
