Thank you!
As one who has used Baja road guides since before I could drive (reading Gerhard & Gulick to my dad as we four-wheeled down the Baja roads in the 60s), I put it together in what I considered user-friendly.

*Samples of scenery along the way with the photos
*Uses the existing kilometer markers on highways to easily find points
*Uses trip-odometer on the dirt roads
*No tedious GPS data downloading
*At-a-glance orientation maps

u2u or email me if you would like to know more

Hi Dave! I am back on the boardwalk in Newps.
I will travel to San Diego soon to fly my Baja plane a bit to prep for my Jun 1 BOLA trip.If you can break away from your cartography for a moment I'll stop by and by you lunch.
Speaking of my BOLA trip. Are there any adventuros BajaNomads out there who want to fly with me to BOLA.
I guarantee you a yellowtail or two and a good sunburn.
The airplane ride will be fast, interesting, and routine.
I flown in there a bunch.
We can split a nice boat. I can carry all rodes and coolers.
4 people max besides the pilot.
The are a few 30 ft pangas that can take 5 anglers easy.


Sounds like fun. I will u2u you my phone number... text ok.

Thank you Bob!

I will look at adding mileage figures along the dirt roads shown. I know distances of under 3 miles is hard to fit the figures into without reducing the font size, however. I will just need to play with them a bit and show you guys here for feedback.

As they are now, the maps are to be used with the road logs which have the mileages.

We drove it in June, your maps in hand
It was definitely paved, nice job in fact.
From Tortugas to Punta Falsa is wide graded dirt- lots of ups and downs and a few tight corners
Good road, but lots of fisherman and abalone harvesting traffic so take it easy coming over the sharp rises and around the corners.

Great detail!

I didn't see the section showing below Conception Bay to Loreto. Did I miss it somehow?

Nope, I didn't travel Parque Constitucion 1857 until last August and these maps I produced after my 2017 trips. If and when I make another to include the Laguna Hanson roads, I will add it to this page. I am just low on energy for such work at the moment... It takes a lot of work to make these maps!

We travelled this route, from La Rumarosa to Rancho la Ponderosa and then south to Laguna Hanson and then Ojos Negros from October 15-17th, 2019. Road to Rancho la Ponderosa is good 2wd; the rancho is no longer open, but makes a good camp spot. The road from RLP south is generally good 2WD, but when one comes to an obvious three way "Y", the centre route is signed as the route to Rancho El Topo and Parque Nacional Constitucion 1857.

This is not the most direct route, and involves a higher clearance, narrow alternative with some water damage that brings one out to Rancho El Topo. At RET, we turned east to gain the original left fork and continued on good 2WD to Laguna Hanson. We did not encounter a single vehicle in over 70km of backroad...

The park was deserted, but relatively well maintained. The parqueguardes didn't have annual passes available and no longer sell one night passes, so we had to pay for three days (250$M) to stay for one night. There is water available at the parqueguarde camp, but it must be boiled...

Road out to Ojos Negros was solid, sporty washboard and took more than an hour in our loaded truck.

Can't wait for your guidebook, David K!
