round trip?


Did you do southbound then again north?

Tom, (TMW) and Roy (Squarecircle) hope to leave late this week to explore the trail - with your tracks they may do more than just "explore." - Tom will no doubt be on this thread later today. He's done the trail both directions a time or two.

Good news that your 4 wheeler got thru.

Roy and I will be leaving San Diego either Thursday or Friday morning. We will be exploring a mine near El Barril then down to the NWT to check it out. rich did you do a GPS track of the trail?

Got curious GE PRO does not show the track. Bing is way better.
Coast line heading N starts at N27 52.14294, W112 46.26897. That is as far as I got in 2009 starting at San Ignacio. To far for a short day trip.

Some of that route (north of Santa Marta) is on El Camino Real. I would enjoy seeing photos of any of the mission road you see.

MAP-1 of 3 using rich t's GPS track


In order to show more trail at higher detail, I have oriented the map with north on the right. I have added a few place names to help locate the area on paper maps.

In the background note the pins marking El Camino Real, The King's Highway. El Gato is on a branch of ECR and was a way station in mission days.

David, thanks for posting everything, TMW, remember the track that David
has showing from San Fransquito to El Barril gets narrow and you are going
thru some tight areas that have some cactus, it is a good bike route, you can do it in your Taco and the scratches will rub out, the other option is to follow my tracks from 2011.

Thanks Rich I'll keep that in mind.

We'll be stopping at Cocos, Panchos, the El Barril La Sirena mine and Rancho Crestones. Rancho Santa Barbara is abondoned past R Crestones.
