Santa Fe National Historic Trail GeoTour

From 1821 to 1880, Santa Fe Trail traders hauled manufactured goods from Missouri to Santa Fe and returned with silver coins, pelts, and mules. Now you can walk in their path and visit the locations that provide a link to the past. In 1987, the U.S. Congress noted the national historical significance of this trail and designated this route as the Santa Fe National Historic Trail.
