The best route I know of is 15N to 79N to 10E.

There's this thing called "Google Maps". You should check it out.

Best as in quickest for me has always been 15 to the 215 to the 74 (Romoland/Homeland) to Warren or Sanderson, then north to the 10.

Yup, because that totally tells you which route is most scenic, or the easiest drive, or the one least likely to have traffic.

I take the 15N to the 79S (south, believe it or not), to the 371 to the 74. You end up in Palm Desert, but then you turn left on 111 and it's not that far to the heart of Palm Springs. It's a curvy way through the mountains, though.

If the weather's bad or I don't want to drive down curvy roads, I take the 15N to 215Nto the 60E and then the 10E.

The OP didn't say anything about scenic, easiest drive, etc... They asked what was the best route. That could mean anything. With the time it took him to type the question and come back to read the replies, he could have easily gone to google maps, typed in the address, routed the trip. If he wanted to see if it is scenic, switch to street view. Isn't technology awesome?

If you like to drive as I do, and aren't afraid of a winding route that is delightfully scenic and only a little longer in time or distance, then: 78E to 79N to 371 to 74, its one great drive. Me and my WRX loves it!
