Copper Canyon Update

Ron and I just got back from a 9-day loop starting in Douglas/Agua Prieta down to Batopilas and out via Urique'. We tried to get some updates as to road conditions and whether the bridge was still intact over the Urique' river, but nobody could confirm. I can now report that the bridge is alive and well. Even at Creel info was really sketchy. Oh yeah, the road is open and mostly paved down to Bato, but mother earth didn't like the scar and is actively trying to cover it up.




  • The bridge at Chinipas is also in good shape.... if you can find it.
  • The Bato-Urique road is in great shape.
  • Coming out of Temoris is a little gnarly.
  • Didn't see any heads on sticks.
More pictures of all this are located at:

I also have a GPX file if you are interested.

Fantastic pics. And even some video action.

Those Mexican cattle guards looked lethal.

How about "Ghost Riders Lane" where you started.

I've been down through Bisbee and Douglas but it was on hunting
excursions for Coues deer and Javelina along the border.

Really found all the commentary under most of the photos informative.

Thanks for sharing. Wish I could find enough time away from work to take this trip.

Was this your first trip across the southern border on a bike?
