Bakersfield to Palm Springs

We are overnighting east of highway 99 enroute to Palm Springs. GPS has me going east on 58, south on 395 to Interstate 15/215 to Interstate 10. Alternative is Interstate 5 south to 210 east to 10 east.

I've done the I 5 route, never tried the other. Sure would like to avoid LA area traffic. Any thoughts?

I have tried all the routes in my 15+ years traveling to AZ. The absolute best route in terms of better scenery, avoiding the crowded freeways, and crazy drivers is:

East on Hwy-58 (I am assuming you are overnighting at Orange Grove RV Parl - great oranges!

Stay on Hwy-58 to I-15 north outside of Barstow (yea you are on the freeway but for only a couple of miles.

At Barstow go south on Hwy-247 to Lucerne (the 247 cafe is a great lunch spot)

At Lucerne (after lunch), Hwy-247 turns east at the intersection and so should you.

At Yucca Valley, Hwy-247 dead ends into Hwy-62. Turn right on Hwy-62.

Hwy-62 dead ends into I-10 just west of Palm Springs. Go east on I-10 to your destination.

I second this route. Enjoy the scenery.
