Highway 20 is a state highway that runs between Highway 1 on the Pacific coast at Fort Bragg in Mendocino County and Interstate 80 just north of Emigrant Gap in Placer County. From west to east in the Yuba-Sutter area, it passes through Meridian, Lira, Tarke, Sutter, Yuba City, Marysville, Hallwood, Browns Valley, Sicard Flat, Timbuctoo, and Smartsville. It is also often used for traveling to Clear Lake in Lake County and Grass Valley in Nevada County.
