4 day 3 night All inclusive Baja Expedition
The Lost Pirate of Baja
Driver and Passenger
This adventure will start at the Tecate border crossing where we will meet up in the secure parking lot on the US side behind the border crossing. This is a secure patrolled lot and you can leave your tow vehicle there for the weekend. Once we do a quick meet and greet and fuel up we'll cross the international border together. PLEASE NOTE: you must have current original registration and insurance for your UTV to get into Baja. (see links below)
Also we have changed our return days to Monday. No border lines and no on-trail traffic.
Day 1 Welcome to Baja.
Heading East through the Sierra Juarez Mountains our first trail will be roughly about 55 miles on entry level trials that will allow you to adapt to the Baja terrain. What starts out as mountain trail soon cascades into pine trees and fast, windy trails that you will have your UTV flying through. We will come to our first stop of the day in a small Baja town of La Rumorosa. We will refuel in La Rumorosa and then descend down to Laguna Salada. This fast paced trail will lead us southward down the Baja Peninsula for about 80 miles before we head west back over to Ensenada to Horse Power Ranch.
As we leave Horse Power Ranch, we descend down the back side through the mountain range of Sierra de Pedro. We'll ride the slower paced and definitely more challenging terrain to El Coyote, then over to Rancho Meling (depending on our hunger level it's possible we'll be stopping for lunch here). Leaving Rancho Meling we ride on a good mix of race course, and well traveled roads, descending down to the small town of Camalu located on Hwy 1 just north of San Quintin on the Pacific Ocean. From there we will head south for amazing beach riding and to check out some of the sights Baja has to offer. Our Pacific route will leave you breathless, as you watch the waves crashing just feet from your UTV. We then make a quick stop for lunch, and a splash of gas, before proceeding through San Quintin . This is an extremely fast and enjoyable section of the road and will provide many great memories of your trip! We will then regroup, before leaving the beach and heading into the 'Old Mill Hotel' for night two.
Day 3 Old Mill to Horse Power Ranch
The next morning will start bright and early. We will enjoy a group breakfast at the Old Mill, then back on the trail for Day 3. From the Old Mill we head back on to the beach going North, popping out in Vicente Guerrero for fuel. The North Pacific Beach route is beautiful and fast. There are many hazards along the route so keep your eyes looking far ahead and listen for those radio call outs. Remember, there is local traffic and residents live here so when in a populated area slow it down to a snail's pace. This action packed day will have it all. Beach driving, rocks and yes everyone's favorite the Baja Silt.... it's like the gift that keeps on giving. You've come all this way to Baja so you have to experience it, not to mention it makes for some great action pictures. Today's route will take us about 140 miles into Ensenada and up to Horse Power Ranch for night three.
