I knew the road from this ( http://www.palapainyelapa.com/pages/road.html ) was there after asking anyone and everyone...the big sign was just a huge bonus I never expected

here's more info I just found:
http://vallartainfo.com/yelapa.html
http://forum.ih8mud.com/trails-event...oad-trail.html

here's a view of the drop amount from the water level. nothing can explain how steep the "road" really is.
down in is on the backseat as far as humanly possible and all the braking your body can muster. we needed to stop every 10 minutes because of the front brake hand pump. it's impossible w/ any moisture in the dirt what so ever!








note: not my pic

here's the map...or notice the lack of any road noted.



however this map says yes...i'm liking this map!
