Not sure about that. The established route south from La Bocana (which actually starts a few miles inland from the coast) was, the last time I rode it, doable in a 4WD, albeit pretty hairy in a few spots. Given the very steep topography of the area north of La Bocana and the degree of difficulty noted by the OP, I think the trail he's describing links La Bufadora to Bahia Soledad, which is then accessible by a 4WD road that goes south to the La Bocana/Punta China road. Interesting. Years ago on the Amigos board an old surf rat posted about a trail that reached the beach (excellent break but a bit sharky, if I recall the post correctly) just north of Bahia Soledad, but of course he kept mum about exactly where he accessed it from the northeast. :cool:

A bit sharky? Lol. I better stick to dirt bikes.

Yes, it's roughly three miles from the coast. Sort of hard to find from the ground because it goes through a big farming operation that sits on the north side of the La Bocana/Punta China road. It's easier to pick out on Google Maps, on the right side in this image.

The trail is very easy to find at end of dirt road South. The first mile is hard part. Bring lots of water as much as you can carry.

Where do you come out at the end? On the mountain above the beach at Soledad or further up the canyon?

You come out on dirt road from a rancho then that road ties into punta China dirt road. Or if you make a rt turn you can get to Coyote Cals and south. I had to take pavement back because my truck parked at Amigos house. I was told you can do the trail backwards also HAAA It looked just as hard other way. I run very Hi gearing on my small bike 14/45 it still pulls hard trail very well.
