Using the GS trip Planner the basic route from Southern California to Gold Beach Oregon is the 5 transitioning to the 101 at/after/through San Francisco area. --- If I set the trip planner to AVOID TOLLS it is about 17:40 hrs and 880 miles. ALLOWING TOLLS is quicker and shorter 17:18 hrs and 871 miles. --- Questions, where is the toll road/bridge?, would my big high profile 5ver be ok on the toll road/bridge, any idea what the cost for the toll may be? Any other info would be appreciated also.

I'm guessing that the Golden Gate Bridge is the toll road.

Any kind of booth crossing like that (tollbooths, immigration, agricultural, etc.) should have truck lanes for high profile vehicles.

Why hurry? That's just 20 minutes of a 20 hour trip.

The Golden Gate Bridge has no toll going north - if you're seeing a north-bound toll it's most likely the Richmond-San Rafael bridge, or the San Mateo bridge. They both charge the toll for west-bound traffic. The current toll is $21 for 4 axles and $26 for 5 axles.

Best route is 5, 20, 101. Do you want to go through the Bay area?
