“Couldn't access Tres Piedras due to a blocked road, lucky we found this gem in the dark!! ”

Reviewed May 12, 2017

Overall Rating

Quite close to 285, but quiet and beautiful. We were lucky to find this spot at 9 pm in the darkness, when we pulled off the road after struggling to access the Tres Piedras spot just south of there. The 'spots' aren't clearly marked, but just look for spaces where rigs have pulled off the main road before. I'm guessing there are 7 or so, depending on how big your rig is. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise and took a walk down the road, and hopped back on 285!
