Getting Here By Ground
From the South:
Take U.S. 101 North up through the redwoods. Travel time from San Francisco is around five hours by car. Greyhound offers bus service from the Bay Area as well.
From Sacramento/Central Valley:
There are multiple ways to reach Eureka from the Sacramento Area.
California State Highway 20 intersects with Interstate 5 at Williams, about 60 miles north of Sacramento, and heads west to U.S. 101. From that junction, it’s a bit under three hours to Eureka.
California State Highway 299 connects the North Coast to Redding. The trip from Redding is just over three hours. CA-299 ends in Arcata, about 8 miles North of Eureka. Currently there are several construction delays on CA-299, so CA-20 might be the best route at this time.
We do not recommend using Highway 36 to get from I-5 to U.S. 101.
From Southern Oregon
U.S. Highway 199 runs from I-5 in Grants Pass, Ore., to Crescent City, Calif., where it connects with U.S. 101. The drive from Grants Pass to Eureka is a bit over three hours.
