Trail map for Baja?

9 posts in this topic

Hey all you Baja riders! Can anyone tell me if there is a map available of trails/areas open to riding in northern Baja? We'll be going down to watch the 1000 and would like to do some riding while there. It sounds like there is lots of riding, but I'd like to see a map and know for sure where we're going. We'll be mostly in between Ensenada and San Felipe, probably based around Ojos Negros as was suggested earlier on the forum.

Also, can anyone recommend a tour company or guide to set up a ride with for either the week of the race or possibly later this winter.

Thanks!

I like the Baja Almanac, but they seem to be hard to find lately, maybe it is being revised. Actually the AAA Baja map is also not bad for the major dirt roads and lists mileage and gas stations (although some stations listed have been closed for years). The Lizard Lady's GPS guide is also supposed to be very good if you're a GPS'er.

from what I have heard baja almanac is the one to get if you find it please let me know where. AAA is your next best bet. they also have a few travel books not bad on letting you know where to camp. from my experience it is open unless marked this is usually on private land. just be respectful and you should be ok most places. if you are riding and come across an open cattle gate just close it behind you if it wont close just try and rig it closed.That has been the single biggest complaint I have heard [leaving the gates open then the rancher has to go chase his cows]

Bringing this old thread back to life -

I was at The Surf Hut in Imperial Beach this afternoon - they had 5 copies of the Baja Almanac. New print must be out.

If you are heading to Mexico via San Ysidro, might be a good time to swing by IB and pick up a coveted copy.

Funny...I've had the book and have never used it in all the times I've been down there.

Now that it's rare, I'll be afraid to use it!

I wonder how many changes are in the new book ?

The lizardlady has the best gps data for baja period. I wish I had the time to ride all those trails and map them out myself!!
