We preferred the back roads of 58 onto 395 and down from there over the Hwy 99 and through most of LA. It may not be too bad if you don't hit traffic in LA..but I was down there for 2 weeks in June and had to go from Burbank to Fullerton. Traffic was awful...and that was at 10AM
Anyway...Sacs and I prefer staying at Orange Grove which is on Hwy 58 ...and then cutting down 395 near Boron.

Good luck ...and have a safe drive!

rvskipper,
That depends on your own definition of "easiest"!
The backroads of 58 to 395 to 15 to 10 avoids the congestion that can be encountered in the LA basin. According to my mapping software this route is 222 miles.

The most direct route, IMHO, is 99 south to I-5 (over the Ridge Route) to the 210, to the 57, to the 10. One of the drawbacks to this route is highway construction in the Montclair/Claremont area on I-10 until April 2008. The other obvious drawback is commute congestion, depending on when you hit the I-5/210 interchange and the 210/57/10 route until you have passed Redlands. This route is 219 miles.

I agree with Tommy Wilson except for one thing. When traveling south on I-15 just after descending Cajon Pass you can take the 215 to the 30 which is called the Highland Fwy. It may soon be called the 210 because the latest extension of the 210 now goes through all the way to Redlands and then joins the 10. This way you can avoid the busy, bouncy section of the 10 that runs through Ontario, Fontana, and San Bernardino. Have a nice trip, Kel.

I think you are referring to I-5, not I-15.

NOPE! It's I-15 that takes you south from Barstow and Victorville and decend through Cajon Pass, just north of San Bernardino.

I-5 takes you south from Bakersfield over the Ridge Route into the north side of the San Fernando Valley.

Travel safely, Dean. We were in Idaho Falls 4 weeks ago on our way home from a 6-week trip. I hope you get to enjoy some of the good weather we had in that region.

We travel that route on a fairly regular basis (like every two weeks) from Merced through Bakersfield to our home in Banning just before PS.

Kel is right, the traffic through LA by going down I5 to the 10 (by what ever route you take, the 5, 210, 30, 10) just has too much traffic on a regular basis. YOU MUST be through the Pasadena to Redlands area before 2PM if you take that route. We prefer the 5 to 58 to 395 to 215 to 30 to 10 route. The 215 to 30 is starting to show more congestion due to the 210 conection that is now open. Might be a little longer but a whole lot faster on average because of the traffic thru LA area.
