Old Spanish Trail

Has anyone done any work on the Old Spanish Trail (OST)?

I am driving the Sante Fe Trail home form Missouri next month. I bought a book that is a great highway guide with every possible point of interest.

After finishing creating that route, I got out my books on the OST and have discovered that a lot of it is dirt. I think that along with a CDR that actually follows the divide, I am goung to try to ride the OST.

Does any one have any tracks? I have Vegas to the Amargosa River.

I have a track from Vegas to Dumont, that probably duplicates parts of what you already have. My track doesn't necessarily follow the exact OST, but you might find some sections that are interesting for your overall goal. I avoided pavement as much as possible, which keeps it interesting and more fun for many of us. Since I promised you some of this stuff a few weeks ago, this will be my first installment (check your email tonight). It will come with a complete roadbook. Each waypoint has a tulip drawing, distance (miles and kilometers), heading, GPS coordinates, and comment (French and English). It also comes with a paper map that’s handy for those following the track as well as anyone following the highway. The track has a few sections that are pretty challenging, maybe a bit much for your typical group.

A few photo from the first guys following this Vegas-Dumont roadbook, starting in Vegas . . . and eventually finishing in Glamis three days later (following multiple roadbooks):

Jerry, you got me curious about the OST and started googling. I'm sure you have seen this site. Interesting maps. Took a peek at your first track. You have me thinking about a combo of the CDT, OST and GWT. Hmm...

Thanks I was not aware of the assoc. I bought three books from B&N several years ago and just got interested again.

How about Mex2Can then CDR then OST?

That would certainly be an incredible ride. If i could get it done in around 25 days i'd give it some serious thought for next years ride. I'll dream for now.

Went scouting around Pahrump over the weekend. Found this sign (MAP). Maybe you've already seen it? The portion of the "trail" that goes from this area over near Sandy Valley and on to Goodsprings is fine for any dual sport bike. Jerry, I've got literally 100 tracks within a 10 mile radius of this sign if you're interested. There's some really cool stuff out there if you get a little off onto some of the lesser traveled roads and trails.
