La Rumorosa

La Rumorosa is a road with countless turns in Mexico

La Rumorosa is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.232m (4,042ft) above the sea level, located in Baja California, Mexico.

The road to the summit is called Federal Highway 2D. It’s asphalted and there are two two-lane roads each. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. The road includes countless turns. The pass is the highest point on the road.

The road links Tecate and Mexicali, running parallel to Interstate 8 at Mountain Springs, in California, USA. It’s a dangerous road due to the wind in the region and the steep grade of the road. This road has humbled many egos. It’s not for the sissies and shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers. It is always advisable to observe a minimum safe distance, to not exceed the speed limit, and use engine braking whenever possible. Headlights are advised in adverse conditions.
