Traveling by foot from Eugene!

by mumz

Hi!

I've just begun researching a low-impact travel route from Seattle to Davis, CA (northeast of San Fran) for the month of August. I am aware of the Amtrack Cascade, which would get me as far as Eugene, and now am looking into traveling from Eugene to Davis, CA.

My curiosity lead me to google maps, which claims it will take 6 days on foot (i'm aware that this doesn't include sleep).

How difficult is the terrain south of Eugene? I understand there are steep mountains, but is it reasonable to travel via foot and camp along the way (in August)?

Recommendations for specific books are welcome.
Thanks!

Not far south of Eugene you will encounter some mild mountainous areas. The biggest obstacle will be the Siskiyous, which begin immediately south of Ashland. They are very steep and I think it would take several days of walking just to get through them. Once you emerge from them just north of Redding, the rest of the way is very flat (and boring, I might add). If you were to actually try this, August would be the best time, in terms of the higher mountains. But once you hit Redding, the temperature can easily reach 100 degrees. Whatever the temperature, it will be hot all the way to Davis.

Amtrak's Coast Starlight goes from Seattle all the way to Los Angeles, including stops in Sacramento and Davis.

You can walk it, and there are people who have done so, but you'll have to really watch your route carefully. There are an awful lot of forest service roads through there that go nowhere.

At the very least, you should get a Siskiyou National Forest Map.

Certain private land owners in there won't appreciate you camping on their land, and it would probably be best to get something along the lines of an Oregon Atlas and Gazettier from DeLorme Publishing that lists various campgrounds.

You will not be able to walk along the Freeway in California I5 if you do so you will be picked up by the California Highway Patrol and taken to the nearest off ramp of the freeway you could also receive a ticket for this as there are warning signs for pedestrians to stay off the freeway. The terrain between Redding and Davis is flat, not scenic and in August will be extremely hot. Don't know if Oregon has changed it's law regarding pedestrians on the Freeway

I can't imagine walking it, but if you do, stay on the coast. It will be cool or at least reasonable on the coast. Inland the temperatures can be deadly. Hiking at 110 Fahrenheit is not my idea of a vacation!

Try one of the map web sites and see if they offer a pedestrian option. I know Michelin does in Europe; not sure about the US.

Wow, you are an adventurer!! Walking all the way is quite challenge. How about hitching?? And there is always the cascade trail. Hey, there is a rail line that goes from Eugene south; it isn't much traveled but would take you through many communities along the way. I think it ends just south of MT Shasta. Walk it or ride the rails.

Does the Green Tortoise still run?? That would be perfect. The Green Tortoise was the hippy bus that ran from U Dubs in Seattle all the way to Mexico. Sleeping on board plus a lot of other things.

Sorry for the light response but I admire your spunk. Good Luck.

Travel Tips for Eugene

Grey skies abound - only for a while.

One of the first things that people will tell you about Eugene is how much it rains there. The second is always how green it is - any connection? It does rain a lot here but it's mostly concentrated between late October and April. This is when you can go for a two week stretch without ever seeing the sun. If you don't care about the rain then visit anytime as it never slows Eugeneians down. If it is sun you crave then I recommened visiting in September or Early October as a short trip to the coast will yield the best weather on the beach. Not for the faint of heart or the normal people. My best friend and I would do something called "sewer running" during the summer. Actually just big drainage pipes for the wetlands we would go up them until natural light was no longer visible. For you normal people go to Hendricks Park under my must see tips.

Packing List

by tinakitty813

Bring whatever luggage you normally would. Also include a day pack or backpack for getting around this active town. No matter what time of year bring an umbrella. Rain jackets, raingear, good walking shoes are also recommended. Bring and wear layered clothing as the weather goes from drizzly to sunshine to rainning during the day quite often in the spring, summer, and fall. Bring whatever you normally would. If you are prone to hay fever or allergies bring some medications. This part of the country is notorius for pollen and molds. Bring your camera for picture of scenic views, rainbows, and interesting people! Bring all appropriate gear for whatever outdoor activity you chose. Dress warm for the Oregon coast it is cold water and can be very windy.

A fly fisher's mecca in the Northwest US. This river that joins the Willamette River downstream even has it's own boat named after it.

I was working an early morning in the cafe here in Colorado and it must have been before 6:30 am on a weekend when two gentleman pulled up with a boat on the trailer.

We were a long way from the McKenzie River and I still knew that boat. I asked the two men "Where are you going with a McKenzie River boat around here?"

"How the h*ll did you know that it's a McKenzie River boat?" They asked me. I replied that I grew up a few miles from the river.

This river and the glacier formed valley that it sits in supplies so many recreational oppurtunities. Hike the 26 mile McKenzie River trail, take a white water rafting trip down the river, flyfish the river and see some stellar scenery on the trip down. After these activites you can always soak in Belknap hot springs for relaxation.

Lucky Noodle, lucky you!

by forbesra about Cafe Lucky Noodle

Cafe Lucky Noodle is hip, swanky, and consistently fabulous! Choose from an assortment of Italian and Pan-Asian noodle dishes, and top up with cocktail or two. Service is excellent and the ambience is worth a trip in itself. Perfect for the twenty to thirty crowd. A place to be seen. The garlic black bean noodles with tempeh dish is absolute perfection! Enjoy!

International Cuisine

by birchy99 about CAFe Lucky Noodle

A busy place. On weekends expect to wait for 15 to 30 minutes. Bar is crowded and busy. Wait staff is very pleasant and always available to fill the glass or take the plates away. Presentation is impeccable. Noise level is moderate. Watch the cooks while waiting in the lobby. Makes the time pass quickly. Full-service restaurant and bar open for breakfast, lunch and a complete dinner menu until 1 am. Serving unique breakfast items, authentic Italian and Asian pastas, organic coffee, homemade gelato and specialty cocktails. Full bar. Organic and locally grown foods.
