The Old Spanish Trail turns off of Highway 160, about midway between Monte Vista and Del Norte. You can use the GPS coordinates, or make it easy: There's a sign for "Old Spanish Trail," and a parking lot where you can unhitch and scout out the road and possible campsites (you'll definitely want to do this, as the road can be rough).
