Old Spanish Trail

While no longer visible to the eye the historic alignment of the Armijo Route of the Old Spanish Trail also traverses the Goodsprings area. The Old Spanish Trail was established in 1829 as a trade route linking Santa Fe, New Mexico to Los Angeles, California. The Old Spanish Trail has been designated a National Historic Trail by the United States Congress.

The Armijo Route of the Old Spanish Trail stretched from Jean to Goodsprings along the north side of what is now State Route (SR) 161. Named after Antonio Armijo, the merchant from Santa Fe who first blazed the trail, this segment of the Old Spanish Trail is both nationally and regionally significant and represents an important opportunity for education and interpretation.
