2 poles is the start finish for Pete's Poker run and other events for those who want to get out of town.
Also a major BFG pit for the 250
Typical rough road to the race track. Doable slowly for any car.

I'll just take a pic of these to keep in my phone along with 6 or so David K hand made maps, which have saved my butt on more than 1 occasion.
Thanks.

Km. 62.5?

Thank you, I took the info off the sign along the road. I see that the RV park is down the side road that turns in next to the coffee farm. I will add a comma to separate the two.

This is why I post my work on Nomad... the more eyes on it the better the guide will be.

Some news on the Road Guide: The manuscript is with a professional now, who will work on it to make it look sharp.
Stay tuned for updates.

Also, with my recent trip to nearly Loreto and the excursions, I did with Cameron Steele's group such as using the re-opened road between San José de Magdalena and Mission Guadalupe, I have added to and updated the guide for these 2019 notes.

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 :)

So that I am clear on how to edit this, you are saying Rancho Leonero and Rancho Leonero Resort are two different places, 6 km. apart? Is a solution just to drop the word "Resort" from the listing?

*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 ...

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.




Woke!

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.

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!

KM 74.5 Puertecitos access
KM 83 Bahia Cristina
KM 84.5 La Costilla
KM 99 Paved Pullout/Viewpoint
KM 103 Nacho's El Huerfanito
KM 117 Okie Landing (site)
KM 127 Campo Delfines (1 km. south of pavement end in July 2012).
KM 133.5 La Poma Restaurant/ Camping (1.0 mi in)
KM 135.5 Punta Bufeo road (1.4 mi. in)
KM 143 Papa Fernandez' road
KM 145 Military Checkpoint
KM 147 Gonzaga Pemex/ Alfonsina's road/ Rancho Grande
KM 149 Camp Beluga (2 mi.), El Sacrificio (4 mi.)
KM 155 Arroyo Santa María bridge
KM 156 Punta Final road
KM 159 Las Palmitas road
KM 167.5 END OF PAVEMENT (2014-2017)
In Aug. 2017, 1 additional km. of paved road was open.
