Establishing a New National Historic Trail
The Old Spanish Trail has been designated as a national historic trail, because of its rich history and national significance. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the National Park Service are currently conducting a Comprehensive Administrative Strategy.
Once planning is completed, the two agencies will jointly administer the national historic trail, which is more than 2,700 miles in length and crosses New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and California.
