Blanca, you should make the drive down to Agua Verde when you have a couple of extra hours on your way through Loreto. The road is narrow in places, and fairly steep, but you won't need off road skills to drive it.

Sections of highway one are far more scary with wide loads, speeding buses and cars on a road with no shoulders!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

Gonna either ride up it or down it in November.

We did that trip up to San Jose de la Noria last April. It was fantastic!! They had just graded the hill thankfully.. "the most beautiful driveable canyon in Baja" somebody on here said.. Best I've seen

Would be super fun on a bike. Take the cut off to the ice plant by insurgentes, unless your heading back south

If you are going to go down in to AV on that trail you can access it by the ice plant heading east out of insurjentes.. Instead of going to constitution and then east

Ok, I'll look for it. Just mapped out on GE what I think is the route.

What are the GPS coordinates for the ice plant. Maybe it's a better route.

It's pretty easy in Constitucion. Go east at the first street just past (south) of the Ley's mkt on the south end of town.

I missed the turn for the ice plant when I did it. Saw it , but didn't take it..

You have the route out nailed. Whether or not you find the ice plant road, you have already done the good stuff. If you are going back towards loreto the cut off will save some time.. Don't have the gps cords but it is in the almanac.. First major road to the right after leaving insurgentes.. Have fun! Would love to hear about the condition of the road after the storm.. Also the effects of the storm in AV.. Say hello to Tio Jaun in AV for me please!
