el camino real national historic plan development concept plan
Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, the National Park Service, and The University of New Mexico have partnered to prepare a conceptual plan that outlines a vision for the development of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro National Historic Trail within Bernalillo County. The plan will include ideas for preservation and public use of the historic trail routes. The projects that will be recommended within the plan are intended to contribute towards tourism, economic development, and cultural preservation.
