Part of the Baja 1000 race course on a peninsula run usually and a pretty cool drive. Lots of water crossings.

The visita ruin of La Presentación is along that road and Nomad 'Gueribo' has posted photos this year on Nomad. I know a couple of people who drove it all the way to Hwy. 53 (Santo Domingo end) and nothing significant to report other than a graded, 2WD road with a few water crossings.

A few water crossings? I lost count of the many water crossings in December 2016!

At that time, it was a pretty decent dirt road, and the crossings had been used enough that 4x4 was not necessary. I enjoyed the drive!




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

I tried to map this back to the trail in the op and only got about halfway. Do you have a track?
