Northern California/southern Oregon trip ideas

Jump to last reply

We are a group of 4-5 planning a trip to northern California/southern Oregon mid July, trying to come up with an itinerary. Our main interests are day hikes, views, sightseeing, wildlife and outdoors...no shopping, fine dining, etc. This is one itinerary we are considering. It involves a moderate amount of driving, but we have a few drivers to share it.

Day 1 Evening flight into Sacramento airport, stay overnight.

Day 2 Drive to Mount Shasta with sightseeing along way, maybe a short hike that day. 212 miles (3 hours) Overnight Mount Shasta area.

Day 3 Daytime in Mt. Shasta area. That afternoon, drive to Crater Lake NP. Overnight in area. 145 miles (2.75 hours)

Day 4 Day at Crater Lake. Overnight Crater Lake area.

Day 5 Drive to Gold Beach via Coos Bay. Overnight Gold Beach. 240 miles (4.5 hours)

Day 6 Raft Rogue River. Overnight Gold Beach.

Day 7 Hike Gold Beach area, drive to Redwoods NP that afternoon/evening. 98 miles (1.75 hours). Overnight near Redwoods NP.

Day 8 Hike around Redwoods NP. Overnight Redwoods area.

Day 9 Drive to/Fly out of Medford airport. 152 miles (2.75 hours)

Any suggestions? Flying into Sacramento is done because of flight costs and timing, plus being able to drive through the Mount Shasta area (seems like lots of viewing/hiking possibilities there). Flights into Portland/Eugene would not work as well.

If there is any part that is more or less inviting, we could certainly cut out something. The only thing we are hard-core about keeping in the trip is Crater Lake NP.

Any recommendations re lodging at any of the areas? This is all done as guesswork having never been to any of these areas, and not knowing what is worth more time, what is not. We did a trip to Portland-Hood River-Bend-Yachats-then back to Portland a few years ago, and it was awesome (sounds like a lot of driving but it wasn't bad).

Thanks in advance for any/all suggestions/comments!
