Cocos to L.A Bay shortcut?

Anybody out there have a shortcut from Cocos corner to LA Bay? Looking to make a trip and want to stay off the road as much as possible. I remember a fork there, just wondering if anyone has stayed to the east on the way down. GPS files are much appreciated!

Thanks

The 2007 Baja 1000 course went that way and there may be some gps tracks for that floating around. It goes south from Coco's Corner through Calamajue wash and then cuts the corner off the Hwy 1 to BOLA pavement. The last few miles of the corner cutting route go thru a horrible whooped out sand wash. There is a "Y" junction just before that - race route left. I haven't tried the right road but it couldn't be any worse.

I think this gets you to it. Google score baja 1000. Then to Tecate 1000 2008 and gps tracks.

Trouble is, he wants the 2007 course. Search Outer Darkness - I think it was posted.

Got it. Thanks guys. Now can you leave me a couple gallons of premium at Cocos? I'm good for it.

When you go though the canyon scout out the water crossings, they have been pretty deep recently, one in particular. I'm sure with the recent rains they even have a little more water in them.

Its great route and as jonz mentioned, the last section from the Baja Pits area next to Mex 1 then onto the BoLA is very soft sand and BIG whoops, but its a short section (about a mile) and is right before you hit the BoLA road.

BOLA track

Casey's Baja book has all of the gps coordinates from Coco's to San Felipe. We did the route several years ago, the whoops were a bitch. Believe me, we were glad to see a little pavement going into BOLA.

i can vouch for the big whoops, as i raced that section of the 07 baja 1000 course. pretty easy otherwise. the problem is they are not whooped out by bikes, but by trucks so the spacing and timing is off. i would love to do it again ...maybe when its not freakin dark out and robbie gordon is behind me.
