  1. Default Drive from Las Vegas to San Francisco via Yosemite and Hearst Castle ???

    We want to drive from Las Vegas to San Fransisco and visit Death Valley and Yosemite National park on the way to San Fransisco. Is there any way we can incorporate Hearst Castle into the trip.

    Default It's all possible

    Sure, there are several ways to do that -- Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum. But first we need to know the time span you have for the trip and when you are planning to go.

    Default exactly

    Hearst Castle isn't on the direct route, but if you've got the time, then there's no reason you couldn't fit it into your plans. Of course, as Mark indicated, virtually anything can be incorporated into a trip if you've got the time and desire.

    From Yosemite, the most direct route would be to go back south via CA-41 and CA-46 through Fresno and Paso Robles and then head back up the coast. You'd need to plan for at least an extra day for this detour.

    Thanks for your reply. To visit Yosemite and then go on to Hearst Castle do you know roughly how many kilometres the drive would be and how long the trip would take??

    Thanks

    Default We have to know WHEN the trip is

    Snow and winter closures will impact the choice of routes -- so we would need to know when you are planning to do this trip. But you can use any one of the free mapping sites to calculate the route yourself (in either Kms or miles). I would suggest using Google Maps.

    Default In April -- the Tioga Pass will be closed

    In April, if you do both Hearst Castle and Yosemite on the way from Las Vegas and Death Valley, you will have to do serious zig-zagging. Here is one possible route.... It's about 1378 Kms (856 miles) and in April, it would take 2-3 days of travel...
