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!

L.A. Bay to San Francisquito Road


Thanks to geoffff plus some input by Walter Price, we now have kilometer markers for points along the graded road south of L.A. Bay:

South from Bahía de los Angeles (thanks to 'geoffff'):

KM 0 is 1/2 kilometer south of the pavement end (Xitlali Market)
KM 6 Camp Gecko road east
KM 7 Road east to other side of bay
KM 15 Las Flores site, to the west
KM 19 Poor Road ahead to terminal platform, end of railroad. Main road curves left.
KM 34.5 Old road south
KM 41 Road north to Bahía Las Animas
KM 68 Beach access
KM 71.5 Bahía San Rafael, camp road.
KM 89 Old road north
KM 95.5 Steep Grade
KM 107.5+ Left Turn at crossroad
KM 110 Junction with El Arco/ San Francisquito road

It is in the list above:

Old Road south (KM 34.5 Old road south)
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.

Just south of the Las Arrastras mill:


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.

Link? The first page of this thread... I just copy and paste it anyplace else, like Facebook's South Campos Amigos page (well the ones in their area).

This list was the work of TW and I in the beginning plus others. All the Score access roads and microwave towers are TW's (TMW) input... as well as others.

While working on the Baja Bound Road Guide, I collected a huge number of entries. Other than the Mexicali Valley farm roads and more of Hwy. 2, I think we covered most of Baja's highways?

the main drawback of your list is that one needs to print it out
no way to load it into your navigation
we are in 2021

No, not the kilometer list it has no GPS to it (Walter Prince has that list)... but my GPS list is now standardized at WGS 84 and I use a comma instead of the slash I used before... I also added the minus sign for the west longitude figures... you can just copy the numbers into Google Earth or whatever platform.
