My husband and I are planning to travel from Quartzsite or Phoenix AZ to the Redwood National Park CA. We will be driving our 30', gas engine, class A and flat towing our car in April 2023. We would appreciate any recommendations on the best route to take or any advice/warnings would be really appreciated.

Moved from ATC, Class A drivers having driving this route may be a huge help with your question.

That covers a LOT of possibilities. Could you describe how much time you have? Do you want to see anything else in CA? Do you prefer staying on or off interstates? Want to avoid big metro areas as much as possible?

I prefer the route up 95, te easternd side of the Sierra's. But, the quicler route is up the 10 to the 5 to the 101. Jump over to the 99 if you want more places to stop (vs the 5). The 95 has smaller quaint towns (farther apart) and 2 lane highway with little traffic,no boring 80mph traffic.

With the price of fuel in CA., I suggest traveling north through Nevada to Reno and then west to the Red Woods.........

Richard’s fuel price comment is an important consideration.

Just did the trip from Phoenix to Portland on a Sunday. We hit Quartzsite at 11:00 for lunch and headed East through LA on the 10. Traffic was heavy all the way to the bottom of the Grapevine. We figured it cost us an extra two hours due to the traffic. Diesel was $6.20 to $6.40 in California.

Older_Fossil and LWiddis, we're thinking that we should take a week to get from Phoenix to Redwood N/P. We're not tight on time or limited on how long we stay. We tend to stay a week to a month at places we like. We try to avoid heavy traffic, difficult roads, and hilly terrain. Since we heard a lot of horror stories about driving around in CA, I thought I would check with you experienced drivers to keep the trip from stressing me out.

JDC1, thank you for that piece of information! Good to know.

RLS7201, I didn't even think about gas prices when I was trying to plan a route. Thanks for the reminder!!!

Durb, We considered leaving from Quartzsite - not so much now. Thanks for the info.

What are your thoughts on taking US-60N to US-93N to I-40W to US-58N to US-99N to I-5N in Sacramento to US-299W to US-101N?

Or, US-60N to US-95N to I-80W to I-5N to US 299W to US-101N?

Note: We drive a 30' Class A gas engine and we flat tow. Also, we tend to drive no more than 4 hours on a leg whenever possible.
