Old Spanish National Historic Trail

The Pueblo de Los Angeles was the final destination of the Old Spanish Trail and is now part of the Old Spanish National Historic Trail which was established in 2002. Due to its recent creation, the Old Spanish National Historic Trail does not have any designated visitor facilities or services available at this time. However, there are museums, historic sites, and markers along the Old Spanish Trail from Santa Fe to Los Angeles. The popular National Park Passport Stamps program is available at many sites along the trail including one at the visitor center of the Avila Adobe.

Famous quotes containing the words trail, historic, spanish and/or national:

    And Change with hurried hand has swept these scenes:
    The woods have fallen, across the meadow-lot
    The hunter’s trail and trap-path is forgot,
    And fire has drunk the swamps of evergreens;
    Yet for a moment let my fancy plant
    These autumn hills again: the wild dove’s haunt,
    The wild deer’s walk: in golden umbrage shut,
    Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (1821–1873)

    If there is any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of Revolution; when the old and the new stand side by side, and admit of being compared; when the energies of all men are searched by fear and by hope; when the historic glories of the old can be compensated by the rich possibilities of the new era?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The French courage proceeds from vanity—the German from phlegm—the Turkish from fanaticism & opium—the Spanish from pride—the English from coolness—the Dutch from obstinacy—the Russian from insensibility—but the Italian from anger.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    You are, or you are not the President of The National University Law School. If you are its President I wish to say to you that I have been passed through the curriculum of study of that school, and am entitled to, and demand my Diploma. If you are not its President then I ask you to take your name from its papers, and not hold out to the world to be what you are not.
    Belva Lockwood (1830–1917)
