The junction that takes you to Salsepuedes(spelling) beach is N 29.25.333' W113.55.648'
it is about 6 1/2 miles to the beach from the last junction.


With help from geoffff, we converted your waypoints to ones that work on CalTopo or other imaging systems, just add a space instead of the degree ° symbol or the period you had . :

N29 18.012' W113 54.084'

I see the trail west of the lakebed and climbing the hill! Cool. Is the final one the junction of Salsipuedes with La Asamblea?


That's how I got in, more or less. On Google Earth you can see the trail going up the hill and into Botica. I went up the left hand side of that little gully not realizing the trail was on the right. I'm not sure how he got into Salsipuedes from Botica though. I got in by turning due left midway down the Botica lakebed and went in over a little hill into the wash to the west, then don Salsipuedes.

A couple years ago I tried to get in from the north from the Calamajue wash. I found the motorbike trail in and crested it to the top before it descends. So the trail goes all the way through. But I fell and scraped up my knee, and wasn't really into it so I turned back. Maybe I'll try again, it would be better to stash water on the beaches beforehand so you don't have to waste time desalinating.

You don’t need a number pad. Did this on iPad by pressing and holding “0” to select degree symbol: °

Every system has a work-around to type special characters. Google will help you learn!

Press and hold “N” or “n” to get Spanish characters: Ññ

Google and other navigation apps do not require degrees and minutes any longer. Put 38 20 35.13 N, 109 39 58.53 W into any navigation, and it will get you there. Sure you could fight your keyboard and use 38°20'35.13"N, 109°39'58.53"W - but it makes no difference.
