This tour will experience the nationally designated el Camino Real Trail “The Royal Road of the Interior,” that parallels the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument through the beautiful Mesquite Historic District of Las Cruces. The Camino Real originally united the Spanish capital of Mexico City with the rich mining districts surrounding Zacatecas and Ciudad Chihuahua.

The tour will visit a well preserved length of the Camino Real near the Robledo Mountains Wilderness Study Area just south of the Selden Hills, and end with a delicious meal and discussion at Nopalito’s Restaurant and Gallery.
