Summer Is Coming To An End
The summer is almost over, which means now might be the last chance you have to get behind the wheel and take a road trip. An end-of-summer road trip is a great way to reconnect with friends or spend time quality time with the family. We’ve listed some of the top California road trip ideas with a particular focus on scenic routes to help you get the most out of your summer. According to Visit California, one of the best scenic routes in California is from Redding to Lassen Volcanic National Park. While Redding is quite a drive from Bakersfield, the drive to Lassen will be truly memorable. The 188-mile route to the Volcanic National Park takes you past Shasta Lake—the largest reservoir in the state—and past Mount Shasta. You’ll also see the placid Lake Almanor and Burney Falls.
Places You Should Go
The Napa Valley Silverado Trail is always a sight. This 29-mile road was created in 1852 and is accessible year-round. The Silverado Trail gives you access to some of the top wineries in the country, including the Reynolds Family Winery, Clos du Val, and Mumm Napa. You’ll also find several places to stay like famous local hotels. Check out the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway at the end of summer. Covering 90 miles, this route takes you on Forest Road 81 and has good stopping points at Jesse Ross Cabin and Bull Buck Tree. There are peaks, granite domes, and dirt roads, so be sure to prepare for bumpy terrain.
