Introduction

You can almost hear the whoops and cries of "All's set!" as trail hands hitched their oxen to freight wagons carrying cargo between western Missouri and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Follow the Santa Fe National Historic Trail through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and New Mexico and you'll find adventure and evidence of past travelers who made this remarkable trip before you!

This mobile tour is based on research and itineraries developed by partners along the length of the trail. While the National Park Service administers the Santa Fe National Historic Trail, daily management of trail sites is undertaken by a wide variety of partners, which can include federal, state, and local agencies; non-profit organizations; and private landowners.

You can visit many sites of the Santa Fe National Historic Trail over the 900-mile historic route. This mobile tour and the official webpage for the Santa Fe National Historic Trail will help you find your way.
