TT West 2024 – Seashells and Redwoods along the California and Oregon Coast

This 985 mile trip follows the Pacific coast from central California to Albany, Oregon which is near Corvalis. The dates for TT West 2024 are September 23-27, 2024. We start in the beautiful seaside town of Cambria, California. The Monday morning drive is, in my opinion, one of the top five scenic drives in the Western USA. We head north on the Pacific Coast Highway via Ragged Point, McWay Falls in Big Sur, and lunch in the most charming town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. In the afternoon we continue along the coast, stopping at Bean Hollow State Beach and end at the Golden Gate Bridge.

The drive Tuesday will begin by following challenging Ridgecrest Boulevard through the Muir Woods and Mount Tamalpais areas as we head to the Pacific Coast Highway to an overnight in Fort Bragg. Stops along the way include the lighthouse and sea lions in Point Reyes National Seashore and the coastal vistas at Manchester State Park.

Wednesday we follow the PCH to Eureka, visiting beaches and Giant Redwood forests along this trip that includes the Redwood Highway and the Avenue of the Giants, a 31 mile scenic drive through redwood forests. Thursday we enter the Oregon coast and see more Redwood forests and beaches ending at Coos Bay. Friday continues north along the coast to Newport and then we head inland via the twisties of the Oregon rain forest to Albany.

Note that as of February 2024, our route for the Monday morning drive is closed due to a landslide a year ago. The road is scheduled to reopen in a few months. If the road does not open in time for TT West, we will start the drive in Carmel and the morning drive will be either a round trip to Big Sur (this portion of the Pacific Coast Highway is presently open) or drive the famed 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach with lunch at the Pebble Beach Golf Course Club House. The selection will be made by a vote of the participants.

TT West is the oldest Audi drive event in North America. It began in 2001 when a group of Southern California TT owners wanted to test their new cars which had only recently been imported to North America. The first TT West was held in Graeagle, California and has been held annually since then.

TT West is an Audi Club of North America sanctioned event and all drivers must be members at the time of registration. All drivers and passengers must be at least 18 years of age at the start of the drive. The itinerary is subject to change at any time, even during the execution of the drive. TT West is limited to 20 cars and registration usually fills up in a few weeks. People on the TT West mailing list will receive an email to register sometime in March before registration is announced to the public on this web site, so check your spam filters.
