Northern California Road Trip Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I'd like to get some advice/opinions on a last-minute road trip we're planning. Basically, we have from July 23-July 28 to circle around Northern California. We're interested in seeing Lassen National Park, Redwood National Park, Avenue of Giants, Headwaters Forest Reserve. So, that said:

1) Are these good choices or are there better ways to spend our time?

2) What could we skip or switch out in the name of a more relaxed, but still satisfying, trip schedule?

3) We're big day hikers, so we'd like the destinations to be hike-worthy (as much as possible).

4) What are some good budget accommodations around these areas?

5) We've already been to Wine Country and Lake Tahoe a bunch--we're looking for new places to explore!

Thank you for your expertise!
