Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service are seeking public input in developing a management plan for the Old Spanish Trail Historic Trail. Designated as part of the national trail system in 2002, the trail route crosses six western states and links some of the West's oldest communities from Santa Fe, N.M. to Los Angeles, Calif.

Twenty one public meetings are being held along the trail route beginning in New Mexico and Southern Colorado, and moving west to Arizona, Nevada, Utah and California.

The first of three public meetings in Utah will be held April 18 in Moab. Additional meetings will be held in Green River, April 19, at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum conference room from 5:30-7:30 p.m., and in Cedar City, April 20.

The public is encouraged to submit comments in writing, by email, or through the webpage,, at any time through May 17. Written comments should be addressed to Sarah Schlanger, New Mexico State Office, Bureau of Land Management, PO Box 27115, Santa Fe, N.M. 87502,, or to Aaron Mahr, National Park Service, PO Box 728, Santa Fe, N.M. 87504,

Some of the more remote sections of the Old Spanish Trail can still be walked, ridden on horseback or bicycle, or followed by wagon or jeep. Other parts of the route are now beneath or alongside some of our busiest highways. The management plan will describe how the surviving elements of the Old Spanish Trail-the route, the landscape, and the historic places-will be managed or developed.

The full meeting schedule is posted at and at
