SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

El Camino Real, an old Spanish road that crossed through East Texas all the way to Mexico, is getting a new spotlight, signs.

After finally raising enough funds, San Augustine County have officially received their new El Camino Real Trial signs. Twenty-two signs are being put up from Sabine County to Nacogdoches, which was part of the early sixteen hundred trail.

The new designations have San Augustine County leaders very excited to share in this rich Texas history.

“It’s an exciting time for us to be a part of this wonderful trail designation,” Betty Ogles bee, National Historic Sign committee member said.

Since the old Spanish route has been recognized as a national trail, the signs were re-done by The National Park service.
