November 20, 2016: Important Doctors Point Update:

There are apparently several new land owners and developers at El Abajo de Tierra Firme, (Known locally as Doctor's Point). They are trying to block all access to the area. When driving north towards the point, there is now a new road to access Mil Palmas and Picazon. The old road is blocked with a large sign reading "No Tresspassing". This has been a very popular hiking spot and we are all disappointed with the current situation. Blocking access to the beach is illegal in Mexico. I suggest that we individually go to City Hall, perhaps English speakers to the Tourist office, and, more importantly, Spanish speakers to the office of the Presidente (mayor).

For those rebellious souls, it is still possible to access the area. By following the new road past Picazon you can still reach the old parking area, but there are new fences blocking access. There is another parking area on the bluff about 200 yards back south from the old parking area. From here there is a trail that bypasses the fence, with a bit of a challenge, you can reach the hiking trail. The area from the trail to the sea is inside the Federal Zone and is public. Supposedly there are guards patrolling, so use this at your own risk. Hopefully this situation with have some positive resolution in the near future.

Shell Canyon Arroyo

Presently, the entrance to the Shell Canyon Arroyo is also blocked from the east. You can still get to the canyon by entering the arroyo from the highway. Head north on Highway 1, 4.75 mile past the Jeep Monument in Mirimar. Turn hard right on an old cobbled roadway (The Cell Tower Road). Turn right into the arroyo and follow the main track into Shell Canyon. This is easily passable with any 4WD vehicle and most 2WD vehicles with moderately high clearance.
