Thank you!!!!

TMW - 2-5-2016 at 04:17 PM

Excellent, thanks

23S52N - 2-5-2016 at 05:01 PM

Wow David! This is why I joined this site. Kudos to you to undertake such a project. Although I can't nail it to the km, tecate to ensenada is all 110 kms.

Regards
Keith

David K - 2-5-2016 at 05:22 PM

Thanks... these are the Km. notes from an older thread in the General Baja forum with four pages of replies on it... and a lot of photos of kilometer posts. While that is fun and all, it wasn't the subject. So, here on the Roads forum seemed to be a good place to start fresh. I added new Km. markers from the Gonzaga area I collected last July. The markers listed here are mostly from TW, myself, and PaulW. I welcome more and will edit the above list so no need to search for the additions.

BigBearRider - 2-5-2016 at 05:36 PM

I think Russ also posted on the old thread about the HWY 1 exit to Punta Chivato at Palo Verde, between Santa Rosalia and Mulege.

Udo - 2-6-2016 at 01:57 PM

Youd'aman, DK.

Thanks!


BTW...I miss you living near San Luis Rey. You were so much closer to the 5 fwy. And when I drove by, I stopped by to visit. Jana and I talked about that this morning as we drove by the 76 expressway.

bajaguy - 4-3-2016 at 10:03 AM

What????.....no marker/KM for Cow Patty's????

TMW - 4-3-2016 at 10:05 AM

I think Cow Patty's is at KM73.

TMW - 4-3-2016 at 10:12 AM

Hwy 53 north of Insurgentes KM26 is the turn off to San Javier.

TMW - 4-3-2016 at 10:30 AM

That is the only KM number I have for Hwy 53. I'll get more on our trip in a couple of weeks.

The Hwy from Las Barrancas to San Juanico doesn't have a number yet as far as I know.

fishbuck - 2-24-2017 at 02:30 PM

Very cool and interesting. Thanks!

Paulina - 2-24-2017 at 06:04 PM

David,

An addition for those interested, Km 199 south of Catavina is Herman Hills curve. I'll add a marker there one of these days.

P>*)))>{

4x4abc - 2-25-2017 at 12:50 AM

how is Herman Hill's curve significant?

BajaTed - 2-25-2017 at 08:36 AM

Suggest adding K74 for the La Salina Marina to the west and the old stagecoach road shortcut to La Mision to the east

mtgoat666 - 2-25-2017 at 12:24 PM

You are missing a bunch of roads that have km markers.

David K - 2-25-2017 at 02:30 PM

That's right, this is a community project. What have you contributed? LOL

between checkpoint and Uruapan intersection is only 4 km
need to check your numbers

bajaguy - 2-26-2017 at 10:42 AM

I believe those KM numbers are correct. Drove it last week. The checkpoint is not too far north from the Uruapan turnoff

believing is religion - knowing is science

Google Earth (satellite science) indicates 4 km in between
so, either 36 km is wrong or 42 km is wrong
36 + 4 = 40
42 - 4 = 38

bajaguy - 2-26-2017 at 03:45 PM

I don't think they consulted Google Earth when the KM markers were placed on the side of the road

Noting kilometer markers is silly, the signage is incomplete, the km numbering strategy resets to zero many times, and most everyone is using gps instead of recording Kms driven,... Given that hwy 1 is mostly a n-s orientation, Why not record observations in latitude minutes?:light:

I noted the km markers for some checkpoints heading north a couple of weeks ago. I will add them when I find the paper.

Ah. You got them already. I had an older km listing.

chuckie - 6-30-2017 at 06:27 PM

Will this list have GPS coordinates as well?

David K - 6-30-2017 at 06:51 PM

The list is here for all Nomads to contribute to. Add them if you wish or even better, make a new GPS list.

My thinking is that as one is zipping down the highway, seeing the kilometer markers is very easy to find something, but looking at GPS waypoint figures could be dangerous or at the very least, time-consuming to enter them into your device, ahead of your trip?

What is your thinking?

I did make a GPS list about 15 years ago. They are at Map Datum NAD27 Mexico. The consensus then was since the Baja Almanac (Mexican topos) use that datum, we should too. Since then, with Google Earth being at map datum WGS84 (the same as the factory settings of GPS devices), well... that is what we post now.

The difference between NAD27 and WGS84 can be very slight (50 ft.) to much further apart... You can set your device to NAD27, enter my waypoints from the link below, and then reset to WGS84. The waypoint figures will change too, but the location remains the same.

Here is the Viva Baja GPS list: http://www.vivabaja.com/GPS/

David, if your entry for "La Grulla market" is referring to Juan Villarreal's market and restaurant with all the offroading memorabilia and stickers, the name of the place is "Acambaro." It is located in the area called Rancho La Grulla. They have excellent birria, among other things, and serve great local queso fresco with their chips and salsa. A great stop for a cold, frosty Michelada, as shown here by Juan.

FYI, David, you have:

KM. 103 Rancho Leonero Resort

in the La Paz to Cabo San Lucas section of Hwy 1, but that is really the turn-off to Rancho Leonero. The resort (and neighborhood) is still roughly 6km away down that road to the Spa Buena Vista-La Ribera dirt road, then south for a good ways.

dunno if that is helpful, but happened to notice it (I live at KM. 104 :)

*I just checked my road guide, and I only have it as Rancho Leonero at Km. 103 (and no resort). I will edit out the word Resort.

Thank you!


Por nada ...

The Rancho Leonero Resort (and the neighborhood associated with it) are quite a ways (guessing 6km) from KM 103 on Hwy 1. I would just mark it "Turn off to Rancho Leonero Resort" or similar. There is no separate Rancho Leonero of which I am aware.

Well, I did not see a signed road for the 'resort'... Only a sign at Km. 103 for "Rancho Leonero" as you said earlier.

If you can get the kilometer marker confirmed for the resort or ANY other interesting turnoffs you want to add to this list, just let me know!

This is a Baja Nomad list for interesting or important locations, or road junctions, on any Baja roads that have kilometer markers.


I see I opened a can of worms :)

More seriously, you probably just shortened it (as I did above, confusingly, perhaps) ... the sign on the highway says "Rancho Leonero Resort" and that is the main way to get there, though you can come from La Ribera via dirt road as well.

KM. 103 Turn-off to Rancho Leonero Resort

is what I would suggest ...

David K - 6-19-2019 at 04:42 PM

Thanks, Jake.
I edited out the confusion I had with there being a second Rancho Leonero road! I now see you were talking that the resort is 6 km in, not "down the highway" to another road.

The kilometer list is for roads off the highway and points on the highway. Distances in, if included, are in miles (as we have on our odometers in the U.S. ... unless the road has kilometer markers on it).

please dont mix miles with kilometers, it is annoying to read. the markers are in KM. It's mexico, where the rational/logical metric system is the system. And most gringos now got cars that the odometers can be flipped between imperial and metric.

David K - 10-1-2019 at 09:00 PM

Goat, this thread list is about kilometer markers. There is no mixing.

In a guidebook for American travelers, where there are no kilometer markers, then odometer figures are the way to document distances and points. American cars use miles on the odometers.

David K - 1-11-2020 at 03:29 PM

Any new Km. marker points we can add?

I am really hoping to get south of Gonzaga as soon as the new markers are all up.

Anyone care to make notes...?
John M did give me one for the old and new road split (Coco's Corner north access) but it is either wrong or the Mexican marker person put them in wrong, or they changed them, again:

When the markers first went in, and up to about 2016, The Gonzaga Pemex was near Km. 150 and the end of the highway pavement was just after Km. 170.
In 2016, the markers beginning somewhere south of Puertecitos were reduced by 3 kms. Gonzaga Pemex was now by Km. 147 and the end of the pavement detour was at Km. 167.5.
In 2018, you could stay on the new highway past Km. 167.5 and there was a Km. 168 added ahead, before the pavement ended.

In 2018, I recorder the new roadbed mileages:
It was 5.0 miles (8 kms.) from the Km. 167 marker to the Old Road (Coco's north road) branch off the new road. Km. 167 + 8 = Km. 175.

John M. reported that the north Coco's road (old road) was at new marker Km. 179 !

Can someone tell me if the Km. marker near the Gonzaga Pemex is still Km. 147 or is it higher again (as before 2016)?

Thank you...

If you would like to humor me:
Make a copy of the Hwy. 5 list (below) and compare it with what they are today. Once the highway is done, I would want markers also for the south Coco's road jcn. and the end, at Hwy. 1. There was a Km. 200 marker there in 2018! I then calculated that figure was 3 kms. too much. I get it that the contractor is paid by the kilometer and more is better!



End of Hwy. 5, at Hwy. 1, Laguna Chapala, Aug. 2018.

Just very curious and I don't know when I can get down that way again.
Thank you!

OK, so I have feedback on the Coco's Corner (older route) fork from two Nomads... both putting it at Km. 179.5 and the Las Arrastras bridge at Km. 180.

These are 3-4 kms. more than my previous estimates using satellite measuring from Km. 167.5 (where the pavement had ended from 2014-2017).

I am planning of doing a check next month.

If anyone has new kilometer data to add to this list, please submit it! Thank you!

AKgringo - 3-9-2020 at 12:48 PM

I took the turn off at approx. 179.5 (a road work plant is there) then followed Coco's signs to a very smooth dirt short cut to his camp.

On the way out, I followed the old road (rougher than the dirt road) and it came back to the new pavement at km 179!

I was tempted to backtrack to his camp and take the old road south to see where (or if) it also connects to the new pavement, but the homing instinct keep me headed north!

Anybody know if/where there is a further south access?

By the way, Coco was outside with a flag waving me in, he doesn't get much traffic through there these days!

David K - 3-9-2020 at 12:57 PM

179 and 179.5 are just 3/10 a mile apart... both connecting, yes?

David K - 3-9-2020 at 01:59 PM

OK, so I just did measuring on the ArcGIS satellite imagery (which is new enough to show the new highway under construction all the way to Chapala from Gonzaga...

We have three Nomads who have confirmed Km. 180 is on the Las Arrastras bridge (by the old mill ruins). Measure north 10 kms. is the location of Km. 167, a half km. north of where the pavement drive ended from 2014-2018. It was originally posted as Km. 170, and the Pemex was Km. 150, but they changed them all to 3 kms. less after a year (to Km. 147 by the Pemex).

Well, this newest section has tacked 3 kms. back on beginning somewhere just beyond to old end-of-pavement which was recently confirmed to be still just past Km. 167.

It is 10 kms. from the old end-of-pavement to the Las Arrastras bridge... 167+10=180! LOL

OK, continuing south, it is 9 kms. to the canyon where the old road took off for Coco's Corner... now about Km. 189?

It is 11 kms. from the canyon/ old road to almost Hwy. 1 or Km. 201.

This should be Km. 198 when measured from Km. 167, but with the added 3 kms., well... who knows why? Maybe so the contractor gets paid more?

In 2018, it was possible to stay on the new road beyond the detour signs and there was a Km. 168 posted, as the last one in August 2018. It will be interesting (for me) to see where the magic 3 kms. was inserted!!!

KM. 167 end-of-pavement 2014-2018 (briefly Km. 170)


KM. 180 (167+10) Las Arrastras bridge/ north Coco's road


Km. 189 (167+19) Canyon junction with south Coco's road


Km. 201 (167+31)

When I drove the new highway, I saw bogus KM markers and I just gave them WP numbers. Of course, the Kilometer guy has not done his diligent placement of the signs when I drove thru. Maybe that will happen soon? David’s missing 3 Km remains unresolved.
The KM180 may have been real – If so then the N exit would be KM179.5??

Highway 5, newest section. Kilometer markers and big error!

David K - 3-26-2020 at 08:28 AM

Thanks to geoffff, the entire newest section of Hwy. 5 has been documented with respect to the kilometer markers and his dash cam.

As I suspected (from earlier reports by John M and PaulW), the kilometer markers south of 167 have 3 extra kilometers added. Geoff has shown that one kilometer south of 167, the marker is 171! As soon as John and Paul reported the Coco's Corner (old route) junction as being Km. 179.5, I knew that was three too many kilometers as I had measured the distance in 2018 on the new road plus measured on satellite images!

So, I wonder if (as in other places) the markers eventually get corrected? Did the construction company do this to get paid for 3 more kilometers of highway work?

The end of Highway 5 at Chapala is now Km. 201.45 (but actually Km. 198.45). This is the distance south from the San Felipe airport road junction which is 10 kms. south of the downtown traffic circle.

The Hwy. 5 list on the first page of this post has been edited to reflect geoffff's contributions.

Paul, I think the kml file is right on, but the gps coordinates for the North exit seems to be a bit off.
Your coordinates: Coco N Exit 29 32.760, -114 16.206
Using your kml file for the North exit I get: 29 32.968, -114 20.472 which transferred to google earth seems to be right on.

Made an edit on the Highway 1 junction with Highway 5. Sadly, dropped Coco's Corner distance (only until he moves to the highway), shortened the distance to Gonzaga, and added the distance to San Felipe.

It was requested that I include the wording: KM List in the title to help those using Search to find it. You can also remember to just look for it here in the Road Conditions forum as well as other updates on Baja's roads.

Hwy. 1: The GPS for every Km. Marker by Walter Prince

David K - 12-28-2020 at 11:58 AM

Walter Prince, who raced the Candy Cane Buggy in early Score Baja races, has been working to produce a list of the GPS (long. & lat) for every kilometer marker in Baja! Personal trips and Google Street View plus other methods were used. I think it is extremely impressive!

This photo by Nomad 'La Tijereta' is from the '95 Baja 1000 of Walter:


Walter initially wished to make a list with GPS of access roads to assist race crews. Our own TW has included many Score access roads on out Nomad list, so there is a shared interest there.

This list covers Highway 1-D & 1 from the border to Cabo San Lucas:

I remember that visit! Good to see you're still on your toes with instant and relevant picture posting skills:lol: We are heading back down to the property in a few weeks. Let me know if you need KM marker sightings. We used to be KM 79 but every once and a while they recalibrate the markers to reflect road changes. As I recall eliminating the "curva del soldato" south of us and the S turns south of Rancho Nuevo was one of the times they did this and then again with the 4 lane.
Good to see all the same faces and some new ones.

David K - 12-30-2020 at 11:19 AM

Super, is Lynn still letting you tag along? Here she is with the Baja Bus:




Bajabus - 12-30-2020 at 11:24 AM

Oh yeah, 26 years strong and our son is now 14. We miss being down there full time. Your maps and posts like this will make our trip down much easier and more enjoyable. Thanks!

It is in the list above:

and Old Road north (KM 89 Old road north).

The green door has not been there for many years.

That is the new address. It is where the ranch of Las Arrastras was and a highway construction camp.

Vince - 3-27-2021 at 05:24 PM

Thanks, David. This could be useful.

Just south of the Las Arrastras mill:

David K - 4-19-2021 at 03:44 PM

Coco's new corner is seen beyond the mill in this photo looking north:

South end of the bridge over the arroyo of Las Arrastras. Arroyo was originally called San Francisquito, after the water source just north of here, on the El Camino Real.

Stopped and talked to Coco a couple days ago. Was windy and a little chilly there on the hill and he seemed cold and a little tired. Shared some snacks that I had, bought some stickers and conversed for 30 min or so then let him be. Seems like he's doing good but still lots to do at the new place.
