Trail Overview

La Sierra La Gata (El Carrizalito) is a trail that crosses from west to east Baja California Sur. It can be accessed via San Juan de Los Planes or Los Barriles. A high clearance vehicle is recommended, 4WD in a few sections of loose/incline sections. This trail can take up to 2hr to 2.5hrs. With an approximate length of 18 km, it's a fun single-track trail to explore with a great diversity of terrain, crossing the mountains with a beautiful view of Los Planes Valley and its beautiful landscapes and ranches. There are a lot of rocks falling from the sidewalls of the Sierra, so go very slowly over the areas that are uphill. During the rainy season, the road can wash out on some sharp bends. When crossing to the east side of the Sierra the Sea of Cortez comes into view, road goes on a shelf road all the way to the Arroyo Boca del Alamo.
