Yosemite to Eureka in a week - need advice

Jump to last reply

I have eight days (last week in March). I want a minimum of two nights (part of three days) in Yosemite, and two nights (one full day) in Eureka. I'm starting from Berkeley on a Saturday morning and have until 8pm the following Saturday (when I need to be at SFO for a 10:30pm flight). So - I have 7 nights and 8 full days. I was thinking go the coastal route one way and 101 the other? My questions are - how many days for Yosemite, how long to allow for the trip up to Eureka. Pt Reyes Seashore looks like it would take a half day all by itself.

I was thinking if I stuck with the two nights (part of three days) in Yosemite (I have reservations for two nights at this point but can change them if I want more, or if I want to flip the week and do Yosemite at the end instead of the beginning) that I would have more time than I want for the trip up to Eureka and back. I could add on something else (maybe go down to Monterey for one night)? Or add another night to Yosemite? Other suggestions. (Not Nappa).

Obviously we'll have a car. It will be myself and my daughter who is at UC going up to visit the other daughter who just moved to Eureka. The week before all this I will be in San Francisco (staying at my son's who lives in Lafayette).

Thanks for any suggestions.
