Laguna Hanson Run
This 200-mile round trip begins at the Perfect Adventures meeting spot in El Cajon, CA and returns north at the Tecate border crossing.
This is an easy and very affordable first trip into Baja for overlanders that have never been south of the border. Laguna Hanson (Parque Nacional Constitución de 1857) is located in the pine forests of the Sierra de Juárez mountain range in northern Baja California. The park is one of the seven national parks in Baja and is an important preserve for many native wild animals like bighorn sheep and mule deer. This national park also is home to coyote, cougar, fox, rabbit, hawk, and quail to name a few. This will be primitive Baja camping adventure at over 5,000 feet (1500 meters) with pit toilets nearby. High clearance truck or SUV needed on this trip. Four-wheel drive is great but not necessary unless lots of mud or snow. Cars like higher clearance Subaru’s can do this trip. Eighty miles of this 200-mile round trip route will be off-road and takes us through one of the most beautiful regions of northern Baja.
