Hi Everyone,

Does somebody know if the highlighted trail of the 2006 Baja 500 still exists? Looking to cross from Laguna Hanson to Valle T without hitting the highway into KM77. Any input is appreciated!

Some is open, some is not.
Basically, rm99 to rm 100 is no go anymore.
Then, draw a line from the highway "3" logo over to the tip of the arrow that shows course direction. From rm100 to approx where the course and drawn line cross is no go.
Of course that's super basic info. Someone may be able to exactly pin point those spots with coordinates.
You can still do Hanson to VdT on the dirt, it's just not that old route, unfortunately.

Is that a no-go from the rain and washouts that year? (07?)

Keep in mind GENERALLY past race tracks are not open to the public after the race. The ranchers give limited permission to use the track for prerun and race and close it off after usually with padlocks on the fence gates. They do this for various reasons - like to minimize cattle rustling and just because they do not want the traffic on their private property and to protect the roads from more heavy use which requires more maintenance.
Remember the unjustified incident where a biker was shot when he attempted to go around an old blocked race trail. A pretty screwed up rancher that time. Get permission when locked fence gates are found and then it would be a go.
