Go out the South Entrance, Highway 41 and head to Fresno and Highway 99. This will take you into the LA region.

Have a great holiday!

Will you be arriving in the United States at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)? Is that why you'll be drving from Yosemite to LAX?

It will take at least 5 hours to reach LAX. After the 41 to the 99highways, you will take Interstate 5 to the 405. Depending on the day of the week and the time of the day, you need to allow more time. Weekdays on highway 99 are full of semis (lorries) and is a dual carriageway. The slow lanes is wall to wall trucks and the left lane is trucks tryinglto pass the even slower trucks! If you end up in LA during commute time, that adds more time as well. Plan your timing from Yosemite to avoid the traffic problems.

Highway 41 south to Fresno.

Highway 99 south to where it merges with Interstate 5.

I-5 south to Interstate 405 (north end of the san Fernando Valley).

I-405 over Mulholland Pass and down the road to Century Boulevard. Do you have to drop off a rental car?

Can't miss LAX!

Amount of time needed would be affected by what time of day you will be driving.
