This is the San Javier to Comondú road? Sounds about the same as when I was over it in Feb 2017. The climb up the mesa was easy with 4WD. Then, for brake control, the steep drop down the other side, before El Horno.

update Nov 20/21 2018


Near San Javier, at the turnoff to San Jose de Comondu, it is signed at 42 km. Took about 3.5 hours taking it easy and with a few stops for photos and comfort. There were some challenging spots on the uphill climbs and creek washouts, and just kinda rough in general, so slow going. The rental Hilux diesel with new 10 plies made tidy work of it all. No problems. I would suggest good clearance 4x4 w/low range and good tires and offroad driving aptitude as minimum requirements. (read: not in my 2" lift Subaru Outback)

Comondu to San Isidro is signed at 30 km. I think we did it in 1.5 hours, but were taking it easy and stopped to enjoy views (I am traveling with my 77 y.o. mother). It is freshly graded; a baja superhighway.

I talked with a guy from Alberta on a bicycle going the opposite direction. Solo. I guess I'm not such an adventurer after all.

Mex Rental Car in downtown Loreto has one with new 10 ply BFG ATs. She's a beaut! Way better than the Jeep Wrangler we had the first day and took to Aqua Verde.
