  1. Default San Diego to Vegas via Mojave

    We are going to Vegas next weekend and would like to stop at Mojave national park. We plan to start early in morning around 4 a.m from San Diego so that we are in Mojave by 12. What is the best route so that we can spend few hours at Mojave before we hit towards LV? Should we take exit at Baker exit at 15 or take 40 via 15 and then enter Mojave? What all can we cover in Mojave in 3 hours? Any other tips? Thanks.

    It's only about 4 hours from San Diego to the south entrance of the Mojave Preserve off I-40 or the northwest entrance at Baker, I'd probably go in the south entrance. It's then 1 hour to Las Vegas from the north entrance on Cima Rd at I-15.

    Default Alternative.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Another possibility would be to take I 15/215/ CA 60/I 10 to CA 62 to Twenty nine palms and then take Amboy Rd to Amboy turn right for a short stretch on route 66 and then left onto Kelbaker Rd to Kelso and then through Cima to hook up with I 15.

    You could stop and take a look at this roadside oddity and donate an old shoe or boot if you have one spare !

    Taking Dave's route is still only 5 hours.
