    Welcome to RTA!

    The BRP should be open in April, but anything is possible.

    It's about 400 miles from Asheville to Waynesboro, and another 105 miles from Waynesboro to Front Royal on the Skyline...

    Another option if you want to stay off the Interstates is north of Cheyenne, take US-85 through Torrington to Lusk. Either way you go, there's not much out there.

    Nothing direct. 4 trains with 3 transfers required. Otherwise, it's buses with transfers, limos, or a $100 cab ride.

    If you are planning on staying in any of the 3 lodging choices on the Skyline Drive, I'd make reservations as soon as the booking window opens up.

    It is about 5.5 hours from EWR to Front Royal. ...

    From EWR, take I-78 to I-81. You don't need to stop, you are going to be crunched for time enough trying to leave EWR and drive the Skyline Drive in one day. If you need lunch, fuel, or a rest stop...

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd consider making it a loop trip - flying in and out of Houston or DFW. This will save you the one way drop charge for the car and possibly get you better airfares flying in and...

    The ones I've seen in the cheaper hotels are free. They are also usually old and slow.

    I'd accept the delays on the Newburg-Beacon bridge, just avoid it at rush hour. I-86/NY-17/I-88 won't save you any time and it's considerably longer.

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd recommend you rent only one car for the whole trip, looking for the best deal when the one way SD-LV fee is factored in. You need a car in SD and LA, not so much in SF, but...

    Welcome to RTA!

    I-90 to I-495 is the fastest route, but I wouldn't take it due to a TON of tolls.

    Here is how I would go if it were me:

    Take I-80 to I-81. Take I-81 to Scranton, then I-84...

    RMNP in early May may not be that great an idea - Trail Ridge Road probably won't be open yet. If you can delay the trip to June, that would be an excellent choice.

    I'd like to add to this a bit - I'd recommend taking CA-210 off I-215 to get to I-10 at Redlands. The I-215/I-10 interchange is notorious for backups.
