  Old Spanish Trail Trek
Autumn of 2014 and Summer of 2015
1200 miles of riding with pack stock from Cajon Pass, CA to Santa Fe, New Mexico
This ride will replicate and commemorate the Old Spanish Trail trading route that linked New Mexico with California during the years 1829 to 1848.
The team will consist of about 10 men and women, who will both ride, and drive the needed vehicles. Members of Backcountry Horsemen of California, Nevada, Arizona , Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico are invited to ride with us on sections. We plan to ride 600 miles to the Cedar City Utah area starting in October, and the final 600 from there to Santa Fe, starting Spring or Summer 2015
Trail Boss: Richard Waller
Volunteers Needed: Riders, logistics, fundraising, film makers  and more.
