Did You Know?
El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro was used by settlers, missionaries, military, and traders for almost 300 years. When the railroad reached New Mexico in 1880, the Camino Real gradually fell into disuse. Today, Interstate-25 generally follows the historic route of the centuries-old trail.
