1In March the coast will likely be foggy and wet. But that can be nice with fog shrouded redwoods and no crowds of people. The direct route, San Francisco - Seattle, is I-5. In March the stretch of I-5 through the Siskiyou Mountains in southern Oregon can get nasty, even closes on occassion.
A side trip to Crater Lake would be OK, but would be much more fun if you are a skier, or even a snow-shoer. Backcountry skiing around Crater Lake, then on to Bend for some excellent alpine skiing at Mt. Bachelor. Other than that, expect lots of snow at Crater Lake and no trails open (except for skiing).

2I would take hwy 101 from San Francisco to the border of Oregon. Hwy 101 along Oregon's coast offer's great rocky scenery without the scary 200 foot cliffs of Hwy 1 from San Francisco to Crescent City. You could go halfway up the Oregon coast and cut over to the eastern side for sites mentioned above.
