Big sur to SFO this Sunday

How long should it take to drive from big sur (around nepenthe) to SFO on a Sunday. This Sunday actually. If we leave around 4pm, about what time would we get to the airport and what would be the best route. Thanks

I would say it's about a 3 hour drive and some of it will be after it gets dark. Are you okay with that?

Fastest route back would be Highway 1 to Highway 156 east to Highway 101 north.

If you encounter heavy return traffic, then take Highway 85 as you enter San Jose to I-280 north to 1-380 east, which ends near SFO.

Dark is not a problem. Thanks so much.
