Bakersfield to indio

Thinking of heading East on 58 to Barstow then South on 247 to Lacerne Valley then to 62, then to hwy 10.
Anyone know if that is a good idea or stick to main routes, 58 to 395 to 15 then onto 10.
Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance

The first way you mentioned is all truck route, so it will be fine. A lot less traffic! The second way is not quite correct,58 to 395 to I-15 to I-215 to I-10. It will take you down Cajon Pass, on I-15 just south of Victorville, just gear down, go slow, same as the trucks, and you will be fine! Remember the speed towing is 55 mph, same as the trucks! Both are good routes, so up to you! Have fun! Rail!

The first is good road, have done this route many times. Stay the night before at the Orange Grove RV park at the east edge of Bakersfield. Fuel one exit west and a wash if needed at a reasonable price, Class A and trailer with towed under $100.

Thanks Guardrail, sounds like my first choice will have reduced traffic and the secound choice will be similar to what I have done coming South.

The Orange Grove RV park is an excellent choice. One note, be sure to check road conditions during storm conditions over the Tehachapis. If hwy 58 is iced up spend another day at the Orange Grove.

Did 247 few years back in a car. I remember it as being primarily 2 lane. Certainly the road less traveled. I totally agree with Orange Grove as a place to spend the night prior to going over Tehachapi. If conditions deteriorate (it can get very windy) there's a good little park by the airport/glider port in Tehachapi. Desert Willow RV, just off the freeway in Hesperia is also a good place to lay over if conditions in Cajon Pass warrant it. Be advised that there is a 6% grade on 62. Four lane highway according to the Mountain Directory.
