  1. Default A Road Less Travelled

    I plan to go from Bakersfield, CA to Death Valley via hwy 190. Is it advisable to do this in a large motorhome with a car in tow?

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! You can easily go from Bakersfield to Death Valley in any size vehicle, but I think you will be using CA-178 or US-395 to CA-190. There is a section of CA-190 on the western slope of the Sierras, (about an hour north of Bakersfield) but it does not connect with the CA-190 on the eastern slope of the Sierras -- unless you are using a helicopter.

    Thanks, Mark. I was concerned about 190. And I did plan on picking it up via 395.

    Maybe I'll skip the helicopter section!

    Thanks again.

    For what it's worth..... I would not take 178 again... no way, no how. 190 has to be a better route.

    Beautiful ride through the desert.

    There are a couple of passes on CA-190 east of US-395, but several RVs and toads make this trip daily.
    Maybe I'll skip the helicopter section!
    Probably for the best!
