From San Francisco the drive north takes you through the wine country of Sonoma County, the river valleys of Humboldt County and into the majestic redwood forests of Del Norte County. If you're traveling down the spectacular Washington & Oregon coast, you'll cross the northern California border into the town of Smith River which is known as the "Lily Capital of the World".

Continuing west along Hwy 199 you'll view the pristine Smith River gorge and spectacular Smith River National Recreation Area. All roads into Del Norte County offer a beautiful preview of what you'll experience during your stay......
