I have been using the forums (and a big thanks to all) to plan my driving holiday when we come over from Scotland at the end of this week. However there is one final route I would like some more advice on.
We are staying at Groveland (to visit Yosemite) and we want to leave there and drive directly to Las Vegas. We are going to leave around 9am in the morning.
From the information on this site and other sites it would seem that the most direct route would be to drive to Fresno then Highway 99 to Bakersfield then Highway 58 and highway 15.
However if I go to Google Maps it lists this journey as some 509 miles taking 8 hours 23 mins
If I drive an alternative route and go via Tioga Pass, then onto 395 then CA 168, CA 266 then US 95 etc it says that the distance is 420 miles and will take7 hours 48 minutes.
Im a wee bit confused!
In a nutshell what would you recommend as the quickest way to go from Groveland directly to Las Vegas and how long approx would it take. We want to do this in one day (next Tuesday in fact)
Thank you very much
