Fees & Reservations
There are no user or entry fees for El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail. Nominal fees may be charged at some trail-related federal, state, or locally owned historic sites and interpretive facilities.
The National Park Service is participating in the new Interagency Pass Program, which was created by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and authorized by Congress in December 2004. Other participating agencies include the Bureau of Land Management, USDA Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and Bureau of Reclamation.

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.
