It depends what you want to see and do along the way I suppose.

The south coast route will be most direct, I think, but will take you through Kingston, a likely slow down and not very easy to go through without a good nav system or firsthand knowledge. But after that it's smooth sailing to TB, pretty much, on the south coast "highway" to Santa Cruz-ish then you can cut down to TB.

Going the northern route will give you new smooth fast highway most of the way. You can go through MoBay then turn to the south at Reading.

There are numerous cut-throughs before Reading that will likely save miles but may be smaller roads but I haven't really taken any of them except one - through Christiana. It's not a terrific road, but was very scenic last time I drove it.

Have a good road map if not JamNav. And leave Zion early in the morning so you can stop, and/or get lost, and not worry about dark because finding stuff in TB in the dark sucks...it's really quiet down there :)

Now that I think about it, north coast is probably faster as well as less stressful, even if you do cut across to the south coast before MoBay. Getting from Manchioneal to Kingston is a long way on a pretty bad road, then you have to get through Kingston, then it's another...oh...3 hours past there.
