San Fransico to Mt shasta

We have 3 days to drive north of SF, can anyone suggest a scenic route? How far is it to Mt Shasta from SF?

There is the coastal route or the inland route.

If you do the inland route it takes about 6 hours or so from San Francisco to Shasta (or less.). If you want to space it out some, you can see Napa Valley for a day; then drive the back roads and see Lake Berryessa and continue to highway 5; then drive to Redding and spend the night and see Turtle Bay and the bridge there; next day its about a 2 hour drive to Shasta - stop by Castle Crags State Park. From some of the vista places, you can see amazing views of Mt. Shasta

Thank you for your response. If we have three days driving north from San F, can we drive along the coast and then turn in land, making a loop? If so, where is the scenic route and what are the towns we should stop along the way? Appreciate your help!
