CONNECTING HISTORY, CULTURE AND LANDSCAPES
Picture yourself with one foot on each side of the Continental Divide, for miles on end. To your right, the Atlantic Ocean; to your left, the Pacific. You’re surrounded by mountains, or high deserts, walking across America…
Or riding horseback with a cart train or covered wagon train on the El Camino Real de los Tejas, bringing supplies and goods to Spanish missions and posts.
These experiences, and hundreds more, can be found in every state across the nation, on America’s National Trails System.
