Sure can use assistance. What would be the best route to drive our Class C with a toad from Las Vegas to Sequoia and Yosemite? We're not sure of the best route and would like advice from those who have done it. Thanks for some input.
I would take Hwy. 15 to Barstow, then take Hwy. 58 over to Bakersfield. At Bakersfield take Hwy. 99 North to Hwy. 198 by Visalia - Going up it has a lot of curves, but the fact is you're not going down, this is one Highway I would not recommend going down, up is a different story, you can come back down Hwy.180 into Fresno, it is a lot better and easier road to go down on. Once you are in Fresno, go back up Hwy. 99 to the Hwy. 41 turnoff and take that route into Yosemite, when you leave Yosemite, you have several routes you can leave on. Have fun, Sequoia and Yosemite are two of my favorite parks to visit.
Thanks so much for your help. As you can see we are from the east coast but are now in Texas making our way first to Flagstaff, then Las Vegas and eventually California. This is a trip of a lifetime and the support and help from followers on this site have been priceless! Thanks again!
15 to 58 to 99 to 198 is best, but plan on staying in Three Rivers and use the toad to visit Sequoia. The road construction in the park on 198 has a length limit of 22' for now. I like Kaweah River RV Park in 3 R's. For Yosemite take 198 back out to 99 to Fresno and take 41 north. Have a Nice trip.
Arches is a neat park, as is Canyonlands which is almost next door. When you are in Yosemite, you can check to see if Tioga Pass (Hwy. 120 east) is open if you want to go up Hwy. 395 up to Reno and see Mono Lake and the Ghost town of Bodie if you want to. Hwy. 120 is supposed to open up this weekend. If you want to head South, you can go to Zion and Bryce Canyon on your way to Arches/Canyonlands also.
