June 2008 Road Trip Day 7
- Distance: 290 miles / 466.7 km
- Ride Time: 1 day
- Approximate Fuel Costs: $22.04
- States Visited: Oregon, California
Left Klamath Falls at 8:30 A.M.and headed west on OR 66, a great scenic route, through Keno (neat place!)and Pinehurst to I-5 at Ashland and south to CA 96 which followed the Klamath River. CA 96 is a beautiful and twisty road with many scenic pull offs. The WX turned out a lot better than it has been (warm!),an excellent riding day. Stopped for lunch at the Frontier Cafe (excellent and reasonable) in Happy Camp (I like that name) After lunch we continued south on CA 96 to CA 299 to Arcata. It seemed to us that the drivers primarily on CA 299 were aggressive and rude.The road itself however was quite nice and scenic. The Super 8 Arcata was reasonable and clean, I recommend it.

Best Time to Go
66 is more fun going up. Green Springs Inn & Cabins is a great place for overnight or food.
Klamath River Hwy 96 is such a nice road. You can ride it aggressively or just relax through the corners. One corner after another and another and another.
299 is a connector road between the coast and inland with great scenery. Many locals hall as-, so beware.
