Camino de la Laguna
Camino de la Laguna, Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana
In 1767 José de Urrutia prepared a map that clearly designated Camino de la Laguna as a road that advanced north from Los Adaes to La Laguna de Los Adaes. It’s location was confirmed on the ground during the development of the management plan and became part of the trail system located at Los Adaes State Historic Site.

Long before Spanish entradas (first explorations) into the American Southwest, American Indian trails crossed Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana. Some of these same routes provided access for later traders, soldiers, and immigrants following El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail.
