That's a tough one. The 10 west to the 215 to 15 is not a bad road to take, you can get away from most of the LA traffic. Then catch the 395 north to 58 then cut across to Bakersfield. At some point you would have to take one of the roads from 99 and catch the 5 from there. When I used to travel from LA to Redding I would take the 99 when I was driving all night to avoid all the little towns and cities but during the day I would take the 5, it's a lonely road going on the 5 but it is fast. Good luck.

Cajon Pass on 215 can be a tough pull for a MH. We now take 247 via Yucca Valley & Lucerne Valley to 58 and then up 99 or I 5 North.

I do and will tomorrow morning do the Indio, although I am a few miles further south, to 247, Yucca valley, Barstow, Bakersfield to the Orange Grove, really at Edison. Stay a couple days until the rain in northern Ca moves north then on to the Seattle area in the next three-four EZ days.

The best time to drive through LA in on a Sunday. I would simply take the 10 to the 210 and drive from mid morning to mid afternoon and the traffic will be bearable.

I've taken them all and think this is good advice if you have the flexibility. The 210 will take you directly to I5.

I personally hate all the southern CA freeways, but have family in San Diego and the Bay Area, so while I'm stuck having to use some of them a few time each year, I try to minimize them as much as possible.

My suggested route would be as follows:
I-10 to
I-215 at San Bernardino to
Hwy 138 at Cajon Junction (through Palmdale and Lancaster) to
I-5 just south of Frazier Park (there is a PFJ at Frazier Park)

I live in the LA area and in my opinion the best way I would go is to take the 10 freeway into Redlands and then take the 210 freeway all the way back to the 5 freeway. This will bypass all of LA traffic. If you get to the 15 freeway cutoff after 10am you shouldn't be I too much traffic. The only real traffic spots are between Arcadia and Pasadena. If you go this way make sure you are in the right lanes in Pasadena as the 210 separates to the right from the 134-210 interchange. Hope this helps

Mr Gunn is right on target. Some of those other routes will avoid traffic thru L.A., but will not save time. You will maintain a good cruising speed on this route except as he said thru Arcadia and Pasadena, but slow downs will be minimal unless during rush hour and even then not bad.

The 10 west to the 210 to I5. you can get away from most of the LA traffic if avoiding high commute times. .

X2, this is our annual route, and it needs to be on the weekend, hate the trucks traveling the LA freeways.

Depending on when you driving to Seattle, the very best way to head north is by taking Hwy 395. It's a gorgeous drive (not during winter) with plenty of places to stop and is RV-friendly. We do it all the time rather than the interstate.

Having grown up in LA (and still go down several times a year) I concur this is the best and quickest route...

We have done any and all options including I-15 north to Hwy138 (a nice drive, by the way...just longer for the saved traffic) but the 10 then the 210 all the way to the 5 has become our default...just avoid the peak west bound commute in the morning and the east bound route in the afternoon.

Safe travels
