I just ordered the Bicamapas from LB maps. I talked to a guy who is supposed to send me his personal GPS track logs from the area, but he is off on a trip so I probably won't hear from him for a couple of weeks. If he sends them you guys are welcome to them as well.

When are you guys heading to SF?

I just got back a few days ago. I was down there for the 1K.

Post up what you get when it arrives.

I used the LB maps on a Baja trip last year and was really pleased with them.

Go to the source.

You should ping Gaspipe as he has more and better info than almost anyone alive. I'm sure he could comment on your tracks.

The locked gates and new fences are between La Huerta at the south end of the Compadre Trail and Ejido Jamau close to the turnoff for Mike's Sky Ranch (east side of Highway 3 between Ojos Negros and Valle de la Trinidad). I keep seeing threads about how guys get around them so I guess it can be done if you look around.

This also is the area where Steve Martz was shot last year, it's an area one of the Baja tour companies has been avoiding for years, and it's an area where small airplanes coming from further south drop off their cargo at improvised landing strips (article in Tijuana newspaper). Just avoid that area and ride pavement for 30 minutes.

If you're trying to cover a lot of miles, take the Compadre trail from Hwy 2 to Hwy 3. It's a fast road.

The road through the National Park from Hwy 2 near La Rumorosa to Hwy 3 should also be open, but it's slower than the Compadre Trail. As you probably already know, the Rangers in the National Park are considering closing the road to all motorcycles and quads, so stay within the posted speed limit to help keep it open for all of us. Mexico doesn't seem to differentiate between street-legal bikes and off-road bikes.

I read about another closure from Rancho El Compadre to El Topo in a thread in Thumpertalk sometime last year. The ranchers were irritated that all the bike and quad traffic was messing up their road. I haven't tried to go through there since the closure. If you're looking for a scenic, easy ride, you may want to avoid that section anyway. It's whooped-out in a lot of places and technical in a few.

I bought gas out of gallon jugs in Heroes de la independencia in March. The Pemex in Valle de la Trinidad is still open.

I wish I could help you with the route through Laguna Diablo, but I don't know anything about it.

Have a good ride!

Your left turn heading south off El Compadre Trail at El Compadre ranch may or may not be open.......it hasn't been open for a while but a lot of folks just blow by the signs.......which doesnt help re-open the area for all.......Racers and Ranchers are working with the local community to reopen this stretch......if there are still a lot of "prohibito" signs up at that location/turn off you may want to proceed further down El Compadre and turn left for Laguna Hansen at the Exit 066 waypoint in attached track file which will run you up the Saw Mill/Laguna Hansen.......

The attached track file provdes a basic/easy way to travel between Tecate, Mike's and San Felipe. (except for short cut from Suzy's - WHOOPS)

I love the constant news reports about how terrible and lawless it is down there.

When I was at Alfonsina's I had the entire beach to myself, and there were not even footprints in the sand.

The only place I felt I needed to watch my stuff like a hawk was in-n-out in San Diego.

I've had nothing but positive experiences in Baja......that said I don't push the limits riding anything extreme down there (not worth the hassle/risk of breaking bike or body south of the border) and I respect land owners property rights/wishes (don't want to be seen as the ugly/arrogant Gringo)

Time to head back down now that it's cooling off.....

Anybody been down past San Felipe? I am doing a trip this weekend down as far as I can do in a weekend. Is there any place to stay down there (in Puertocitos or past it) or is it just camping? Anyone have any tracks?

I am planning a bike trip this winter and this is a little prelude ride. I have a Wee Strom so I am not looking to tackle anything too aggressive.
