El Camino Real de los Tejas - Louisiana National Historic Trail

El Camino Real

 

Designated as a National Historic Trail in 2004, El Camino Real de los Tejas (Highway 6 in Louisiana and Highway 21 in Texas) has existed for more than 300 years.

El Camino Real has its easternmost beginning in Natchitoches, Louisiana [actually begins at Los Adaes, present-day Robeline, LA] and runs over 1600 miles from Piney Woods through rolling hills to the arid lands of Old Mexico [Mexico City].

The Spaniards and the French that marked the trail were followed by such men as Moses Austin and his son Stephen Fuller Austin (The Father of Texas), Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and early missionaries of multiple faiths.
