There is a saying in the Southwest that "all roads lead to Santa Fe." The city was linked to the trade-hungry markets of Mexico via El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro. Santa Fe was linked to midwestern and east coast markets by the Santa Fe Trail. The Old Spanish Trail provided the first overland link from Santa Fe to California.  All 3 of these historic trails are part of a National Trails System that includes 25 national historic and scenic trails in the United States.
