Wow, if these valleys don’t take your breath away—nothing will. The best route from Yosemite
to Death Valley
is via highways US-395 South
and CA-190 East
. This is assuming that you’ve crossed Yosemite Valley and are at the east entrance in the town of Lee Vining, California
. This route to Death Valley takes about 2 hours and 50 minutes
If you’re at the west entrance of Yosemite in El Portal, California, you can cross the national park to the east entrance through Highway 120
—but be advised that this road is only open from late May or early June
until the late fall season
due to weather. If the road is closed, you will need to travel by car up and around the northside of the valley
via highway CA-88 West
to make your way toward Death Valley. Unfortunately, this is a six-hour detour
so you’ll want to check Yosemite’s website
for road advisories.
