You don't say from where on I80. Are you coming from the San Francisco or Sacramento area?
If from the west near San Francisco, it's a pretty straight forward route east on 580 then 205 and 5, thru Manteca on 120 all the way to Groveland. There is a twisty, windy grade on 120 just before Groveland but I think
big rigs manage to get up there. I've driven this route many times over the years, most recently coming through Yosemite to the east of Groveland in my 30' Class C.
From Sacramento, probably I5 south to 120.
