In March 1992 the National Park Service published a National Trail Study and Environmental Assessment on the feasibility of establishing a Coronado Expedition National Historic Trail. NPS concluded that insufficient information existed about the route followed by the Coronado expedition. Subsequently, a major campsite of the Coronado expedition was located in Texas. That discovery, combined with earlier archaeological work near Bernalillo, NM, has triggered a cascade of Coronado expedition site locations over the last twenty years.
