49 is OK, very scenic but it can be slow with all of the the traffic through some of the small towns. Since Hobbes didn't make it to the Lost Coast we did it for her last week
. Found the back road into Oroville and 162 to be a perfect alternative to Hwy 20. Came home on Hwy 36 all the way to 89 then cut over to 49 on the Gold Lake Rd.
Hwy 36 from Fortuna is a fantastic route from the coast. Very light traffic, actually saw more motorcycles than cages, I guess it's not a secret
