We will be traveling from southern Oregon to Rocky Mountain National Park in later June. We have a 28 ft Keystone travel trailer pulled by a 2500 Silverado. We will be spending our first night in Winnemucca, Nevada. For safety reasons is it better to stay on I80 and cut down on I25 to Estes Park or is State Route 40 to 34 going through RMNP a safe alternative?
We've already learned that from southern Oregon on SR140 to 95 to Winnemucca is rather steep with fairly narrow roads and steep drop offs, so we changed that leg of our route through Reno. It added only 30 minutes to the first leg. And thoughts on this change?
Thanks for your help.
