3 would work - but it depends on where you are starting from/ending to really give a good answer. For example, from San Francisco, I consider a minimum trip 3 days - but 4 works better. So let us know where you are coming from...Thanks.

Do you mean how many days actually in the park or how many days from somewhere to the park and back? If so, from where?

"how many days in RNP would be sufficient.

3 Days in the park will give ample time to see the highlights. More time, of course, would be even better.

If you are coming back down 101 to Leggett for the coastal route, you might consider taking 299 from Redding on your way up. It will give you a change of scenery and may be a few minutes quicker.

If you are driving Hwy 1, I would recommend staying the night in Mendocino or Fort Bragg (or the communities nearby). It's too far to go to Bodega Bay or Point Reyes for the night. Spend the second night (if you have one) at one of those places.

What is your total California itinerary? Are you driving from Ohio or flying into Sacramento?
