“Baja Trail Rides” Frequently Asked Questions Menu

What is the difference between ½ day and full day trail ride?

Trails can be customized for Advance, Intermediate or beginning riders, but they should not be combined, that is, the group can only go on trails that the least experience riders in the group can navigate. You could ride on the “Water Canyon Trail”, “No Tracks Trail”, “Bushwhacker Trail”, “Upper Crest Trail”, or “Wagon Wheel Rim Trail”. ½ day trail: Rides would start at 8:30am to Noon, (Lunch: At a local restaurant. The rider would pay for the meal.) After lunch, then back to Coyote Cal’s via a different route, at about 1:00pm or 1:30pm.

Full day trail: Rides would start at 8:30am to Noon, (Lunch: At a local restaurant. The rider would pay for the meal.) After lunch, a second loop ride and then back to Coyote Cal’s via a different route, at about 4:00pm or 5:00pm.  The ride needs to end one hour before sunset.

(This is called an “Hour Safety Zone”, time needed in case of mechanical or medical trouble.)

What is a typical ½ day beginning tour?

“Water Canyon Trail” (Beginner)

The tour starts at Coyote Cal’s. The group rides toward San Vicente and ascends into the mountains, later making a return loop into San Vincente and then back to Coyote Cal’s.  The Water Canyon Trail is a scenic two track with many water crossings. It ends at a small river crossing with a hot spring. After that point it can go to many different single tracks or abandoned two track trails.

The track will go in a southerly direction and ends up back in San Vincente and then to Coyote Cal’s via a different route. Trails will be mountain crests with vistas on both sides on seldom used trails.

What is a typical ½ day intermediate tour?

The trail would begin with the “Water Canyon Trail” as described in the beginning tour, but the trail would merge into the “No Tracks Trail”. It is a challenging mountain single track with beautiful Pacific Ocean and valley vistas.  The trail passes by a seldom used trail by a spring.

There are some extremely steep downhill trails, canyons to cross, tight single horse like trails, some overgrown brush, and some rocky areas.

There is also a peaceful oak grove.

What is expected from the riders?

• Ride at a safe speed.

• Do not endanger other riders.

• No GPS equipment, no telephones with tracing, and no spot trackers. No “Go Pros”.  Still camera equipment is okay. (The reason for no GPS is that these trails need prior approval of ranchers.) The reward of making sure all in the group is not tracking is that the group goes on better trails!)

• This is a tour to explore Mexico and go to places other riders have never been.

This is not a race.
