Old Spanish Trail (trade route)
The Old Spanish Trail is a historical trade route which connected the northern New Mexico settlements near or in Santa Fe, New Mexico with that of Los Angeles, California and southern California. Approximately 1,200 mi (1,900 km) long, it ran through areas of high mountains, arid deserts, and deep canyons. It is considered one of the most arduous of all trade routes ever established in the United States. Explored, in part, by Spanish explorers as early as the late 1500s, the Trail saw extensive use by pack trains from about 1830 until the mid-1850s.
The name of the trail comes from the publication of John C. Frémont’s Report of his 1844 journey for the U.S. Topographical Corps. guided by Kit Carson from California to New Mexico. The name acknowledges the fact that parts of the trail had been known to the Spanish since the sixteenth century. Frémont's report named a trail that had already been in use for about 15 years. The trail is significant to New Mexico history, because it established an arduous but usable trade route with California.

The Old Spanish Trail Documentation Project: CA - Emigrant Pass Route Segment: Significance
 By Mark Henderson and Rachel Preston Prinz The Emigrant Pass route segment constitutes a verifiable landscape through which a mule and horse pack trail (later known as the “Spanish Trail”) passed and can be historically linked with the trade in commercial products between the Mexican Territories of Alta, California and Nuevo Mexico in the period of 1829-1848. This conclusion is based on evidence of the trail passing over this area as described in the journals and maps created by John C Frémont in 1844 as well as the published journal of George Douglas Brewerton, who passed through the area with Kit Carson in 1847.
