I've done this from Willows up 162 to 306 and it is a very pleasant, almost no traffic rural road meandering thru the foothills w/ pleasant scenery. The road is fairly fast until it doubles back and down thru Lodoga where the pavement quality goes down a bit as you come down the hill into Maxwell on I-5. Highly recommended ;o)
