A variety of trail-related historic sites, wayside exhibits, and markers are waiting in six states for your visit. Due to the Old Spanish National Historic Trail's recent authorization (December 2002), there are no national historic trail-related guides available. For now, you will need to check local guidebooks and other information sources to find trail-related sites.

The Old Spanish Trail Association hosts various activities and events connected to the trail. For further information, refer to the association's web site at www.oldspanishtrail.org.
