  1. Default Las Vegas to San Francisco via Yosemite


    If I may add a similar question!

    I will be leaving Las Vegas early morning August 15th. The plan is to drive to Yosemite and stay for the night (not sure if we should pass through Death Valley, or what the best route is, and the approximate driving time). Also, what is the best place to stay in Yosemite but also the most convenient for the specific trip? On the next morning we will leave for San Francisco.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Default Yosemite Valley.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums ! [Rather belatedly I'm sorry to say]

    It's certainly worth driving across Death valley and the amazing landscape it offers. From Vegas take 160 to Pahrump and then W. Bell Vista Ave/ Ash Meadows Rd to Death valley junction and then 190/136 to Lone Pine and north on 395 and into Yosemite over Tioga Pass [CA120]. You should expect it to be at least a 10 hour day to Yosemite valley and more if you spend time sight seeing in DV and over Tioga Pass etc. The valley is the best place to stay with your limited time [I would recommend an extra night if at all possible] but it's whether it suits your budget and if there are any lodgings available in the park. If not you would be looking at Mariposa or Groveland as two options outside the park. You should be able to make SF within 5 hours so hopefully you will be able to spend a little time in Yosemite during the morning.
