Markers Found Along SR 159

33 The Old Spanish Trail 1829 – 1850

at Town Center in Blue Diamond, Nevada

Stretching for 130 miles across Clark County, this historic horse trail became Nevada’s first route of commerce in 1829 when trade was initiated between Santa Fe and Los Angeles. The trail was later used by the wagons of the “49ers” and by Mormon pioneers. Concrete posts marking the trail were erected in 1965.
