The Old Spanish Trail

The Old Spanish Trail was established between 1800-1850 as a regional trade route between Santa Fe and California. Dominguez and Escalante traveled through the valley in 1776.

09212016_cb-20 Between August and December, 1776 Franciscan Fathers, Francisco Atanasio Dominguez and Sylvester  Velez de Escalante attempted to find an overland route between Spanish villages and Spanish Mission in California.

"...we swung west through valleys of very beautiful timbre and abundant pasturage, raise and various other flowers.
