Route 66 is a historical, cattle rambling route used by wagon trains through the American West. The historic U.S. route 66, which runs east through New Mexico southward to Texas, followed the route taken by cattle rangers in the late 1800s. The original route was completed between Mineral Springs and Coronado Springs; however, the first cattle train to reach Coronado, Colorado, made its final trip through the route in 1869. Today, Route 66 is a popular route for travellers looking to travel west across the United States.
