after the Baja 1000...... the road will have rough areas leaving many corners from high horsepower vehicles spinning 39 inch tires. the hard pack straightaways wont change much. I would not let this be of much concern regarding a trip to San Fran.


There are a couple spots that clearance is required...at least that was last week. Clearance is more important than 4wd on this road.

Are these new people taking care of the place or the same ones who have been there for 4 years or more? Doesn't sound like the same people I encountered when I was there a couple of times.

...Juan, his son Leonel & Rosa were there and have treated us very well every time we have been there... They are very simple people and don’t wish to invade your own space, but, when something is needed and requested they have always been helpful in serving you... I did notice that Juan’s English is getting better also on this trip... You can contact them at Sanfrancisquito@hotmail.com

WOW, what great info. I'm leaving next week to go from
BoLA-SF-El Arco and then back to HWY 1 and south. I just created a Baja Nomads account today at the recommendation of a friend because I've never been from SF to El Arco and wondered about road conditions. Well, no need to ask the question as it's already answered here.

Great trip, report and pics!

Welcome to Baja Nomad.
There are additional road details and photos in one of my recent trip reports. See the Nomad Trip Reports forum. TRIPs #1-#7 cover most of Baja this year. I think #5 covers the El Arco road and #1 covers the L.A. Bay to Pta. S. Francisquito road.

Thanks for the response David, I read them. Great info and very nice pics.

I'm planning on heading to San Ignacio and La Purisma after that. I was wondering if the road to La Purisma west from Hwy 1 just below Conception is passable or if it's necessary to go through Insurgemtes?

Yes it is passable. David did an excellent write up on it in one of his trip reports. Also it is open to pre-running for the Baja 1000 race. The race course jumps off the paved road from San Ignacio about 22 miles out of town. It rejoins the graded road from the Laguna to El Datil and stays on the graded road thru the salt flats and on to San Juanico. About 10 miles south of San Juanico it follows the old road to La Purisima.

Hey C205 Driver, did you ever fly your 205 into San Francisquito?

I flew in a number of times starting in 1990 and never saw many other aircraft other than a couple of tail draggers. The paved strip was already toast so we always landed on the dirt strip.

Groups of bikes were always coming through getting fuel and beer.

Stickers.... No longer flying, but, have flown into PSFO 15 times or so; walked both runways & “the used to be paved runway” looked good for those with wheelpants.... Was there once for a full week with my friends & no one else spent night there...Another time we had 7 planes down from O22 for my birthday trip...Not a Resort,but, sure is a spectacular place...
