Ok, I just read your September thread on that. Did you do the November ride?

Where can you jump down to the coast above Cals that avoids the really difficult stuff?

The most direct and reliable route is the road that heads west out of Santo Tomas to Punta San Jose/Punta Cabras. There is a way to get there that branches south from the La Bocana/Punta China road west of Santo Tomas, but I can't vouch for recent conditions, gates, etc.

Ok, I just read your September thread on that. Did you do the November ride? We did not return to Missing link trail Nov. Made new Trail called Ridge trail and Wilderness Trail but not that area. From Coyote Cal you can take dirt road North all the way to Punta China then out to pavement to bypass Missing link trail .Then to Ensenada I'm told more easy to do Missing Link trail. South To North but after going down it to Punta China does not look easy. Maybe if I can get guys to do it again this Dec. :)

Had a fantastic day of riding with Baja Trail Rider and Mike. Didn't have much time to take photos, was too busy riding!
Super big thanks to Baja Trail Rider for taking me out to the best riding I have ever done.

Is that first pic the cattle tank at the start of Mary's trail? If so I bet that was fun to get around.

I have followed for a surprisingly long distance on my ATV the graded surface and service roads associated with the underground natural gas line from terminal port south of Bajamar to its border crossing point at Otay Mesa.

Glad you got hooked up with Larry. Couldn't ask for a nicer guy or a better guide. Haven't met Mike yet but am looking forward to riding with him too. Glad you had a great time.

This was Mr propers first ride in baja. We softened up his susp ,let his tires down to 5/6psi. Away he went 2012 250 Husky 4 stroke he give it hell wanted to try any hill climb on trail. As it turns out it has little low end its fast but needs to rev its brains out. A very hard bike to ride on hard trail. That did not stop him from having fun we did two loops east and west on beach side.

I think he had the desert It tire in rear they don't work well on trail. Those are almost Ok with 2psi and 4mil thick tubes. Still hard as a rock with 2 psi. Most of us use 6psi front rear 4/6 psi with MT47 dirt bike trails tire.
