We spent the night in Pescadero on 12/26 and drove the road to Del Cabo on the 27th. Road is slow with minor washouts. Worse on the west side. Had to use low range in a couple of steep places, but mostly 1st gear was good enough. Enjoyed the drive and the great views. Followed the NORRA track and provided the NORRA guys with updates via the NORRA Msat units we were using.
Road is good enough for most SUVs with adequate clearance. Probably not so good if the road is wet.
Rigs for this trip were an extended cab Raptor and my extended cab long bed F350. A couple of 3 point turns for my rig and washouts were not an issue.
I cannot see “Naranjas”on the map . Please enlighten me.

Good find Harald! I looked at the INEGI and Almanac topos and didn't see that. What map is this one?

Harald, Thanks for the input I would never have found the place without your post. I am very unfamiliar with the IGENI BCS maps, but after a while I found my way. I did find the place on IGENI F12B44. For looking on Google earth find the place close to 23 13.052, -109 52.122. Seems to be a resort??? with lots of buildings.
I grabbed a couple of screen shots for the place

Thanks, Harald.....I use that on my GPS but haven't gotten into it enough to view it on the computer as my version was the e-mail download dedicated to my GPS serial #....will play around with that one of these days.

Best map for Baja nad Mexico in my experience....limited as it is.

If you have E32 loaded in your GPS you can connect it to you PC and if you have Garmin BaseCamp loaded on your PC you can view the E32 maps. Just zoom in for better quality of definition and elevation contours.

Google Earth + an app like Back Country Navigator is much better than a stand alone GPS these days.

I was up there 4 of months ago on quads, the top was really torn up. It was not passable with a vehicle. I will check with a friend who went up on a quad a few weeks ago and report back.
