1598-1890
El Camino Real (The Royal Road) sustained New Mexico's settlers from the start. Settlers traveled north to la tierra adentro (the interior land) and back to cities in the south. El Camino Real was a viable commercial route for 225 years before the Santa Fe Trail. The Royal Road was not only the settlers' travel route, but it also provided essential supplies as well as a means of communicating with the world beyond New Mexico. El Camino Real is marked with place names such as Jornada del Muerto (Journey of the Dead) that testify to the perils of the journey. Robledo Peak and Doņa Ana commemorate travelers who died along the way. After 1821 the Camino was called The Chihuahua Trail, a route that is essentially replicated by today's Interstate 25.
