Showing you the way along the Trail
Look left, look right, look straight ahead — the land has a story to tell. Swells and swales, creek crossings and river routes, dips and ruts: all these signify an international highway of the past! You can follow American Indian routes that Spaniards used to establish missions and presidios in a travel corridor from the Rio Grande to Louisiana. Imagine these long-ago times as you travel to historic rendezvous points and scout natural landmarks across the countryside.
These tell-tale signs will help you find and explore the many places and stories of El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail.
