Hikes, Walks and Explorations
in Loreto, the Sierra Giganta and the surrounding area
A note about land ownership, permissions and common
Our guidebook was intended
to be an opening, where we could explore and view
this magical land. A few of our hikes, unknowingly
cross private lands. Problems have arisen mostly
due to folks hiking in large groups with multiple
vehicles. Keep your group size small, please no
mre than 8-10. Keep your dogs on a leash. Please
if you pass any ranch, stop, be polite and ask permission
to pass. Many will happily let you continue, some
may not, and some may ask for a donation. This is
their land, be respectful. If you do pass, do not
disturb anything, do not take any rocks, plants
or artifacts. If you bring a dog, keep it leashed!
dogs have been responsible for injuring and even
killing young goats. If your dog poop, bring it
2019 Edition is currently SOLD OUT.
To ask permission in Spanish ¿Está
bien para nosotros caminar aquí?
Let's work hard to keep a good relationship with
all of our local friends.
For the time being,
please avoid any of the hikes in the Mysterio Canyon
area, at the end of the Oasis Primer Agua Road.
The Fifth edition will be available in November 2021
Descriptions and maps
of over 60 hikes and 20 Mountain Bike Rides
Loreto has always been known as an aquatic playground for kayakers, scuba divers and fishermen. With the majestic Sierra Giganta Mountain range, hundreds of canyons, arroyos and miles of beautiful shoreline, it is destined to become an avid hiker and adventurer’s paradise as well.
In our first edition of HIKING LORETO we described
some of the many walks and hikes in the area. In
this edition, now the fourth, We have added many
new areas, hikes and mountain bike rides in this
spectacular and remote area.
