San pedro Martir Plateau trails


Any info in regards to the nature of the trails connecting Vallecitos, La tasajera, los llanitos, La Encantada, La Grulla and Rancho viejo meadows?

Trails-----


------50 years ago I can testify that trails DID exist between all those places as I walked and rode horses over them all. What they are like now I have no idea, but would guess that they are still viable. There are NOMADS that are knowledgeable on this, and I am sure they will answer you more up-to-date. :yes:

Don't know if the Map Centre in San Diego is still in existence but they used to sell a map of the park that showed a lot of roads and trails. Perhaps the ranger station in the park sells them.

Found the Map Centre's website:

If you can find the topo sheets of the area(either through the Map Centre or INEGI in Ensenada) they'll usually have lots of old trails marked.

Get the Jeryy Schad map of the park, available at the Map Centre. The roads shown on Schad's map still exist, but most are off limits to unauthorized vehicles and only infrequently used by workers (e.g. park workers or cowboys). The roads and various unmarked trails are great hiking or biking trails. Many of the trails shown on Schad's map are poorly marked, so take your compass and plan on plan on practicing your map reading skills and spending a lot of time route finding.
But the area is friggin incredible, and best of all you'll probably be all alone in enjoying the wilderness.
I was up there last week and rode down to Tasajera. Saw no one there -- just thousands of acres all for me (and a bunch of cows).
