The Old Spanish Trail

The Old Spanish Trail

The Spanish trail was an 1120 mile long trace between Santa Fe and Los Angeles. A commercial route used by traders operating during the Mexican period of 1820s to1850. It was the first major thoroughfare across the southwest. The Richfield Field Office manages sections of the National Historic Trail running from the Fish Lake National Forest southwesterly from the town of Fremont through grass valley, with a cutoff through the Sevier valley and continuing southerly through Circleville. Little evidence remains on-ground and the actual route is not marked.
