East

There are several routes in and out of Mendocino. To get to US 101 in Ukiah you can take Comptche-Ukiah Road  (travel time is 1½ hours from Mendocino and the road is fairly rough).  This scenic route winds through redwood and pygmy forests, meadows, valleys, hilltops, and along a river. Along the way you will pass the one-store town of Comptche (1/2 hour to the east), the entrance to Montgomery Woods State Park (one hour from Mendocino, containing some of the tallest redwood trees in the world) and Orr Hot Springs (one hour from Mendocino, just past the state park) where you can enjoy a geothermal hot springs. There are no restaurants along this route. We recommend stocking up on picnic supplies in Mendocino before heading out. To get there: Take Highway 1, head south for about ½ mile and take the first left just past the Big River Bridge onto Comptche-Ukiah Road. 


Another popular eastern route is Highway 128 (1 ½ hours to US 101 at Cloverdale from Mendocino). This scenic route winds through the Mendocino County wine country past tasting rooms, charming burgs, Navarro River (and some great swimming holes) and redwood forests (about 3-10 miles inland).  For lunch, eat at the Boonville General Store (and shop next door for unique, beautiful items) or Mosswood Market, for dinner, try Table 128 (Thursday through Sunday) in Boonville or Stone and Ember in Philo (1 hour from Mendocino).
