Trade, exploration and hunting trails along the Canadian are older than recorded history—old when used 1541 by Spaniard Coronado hunting golden cities of Cibola. Route in 1840 for Josiah Gregg and 34 Missouri men with goods worth $25,000 headed for trade in Santa Fe. Used by 1849 parties escorted by U.S. Army Captain R.B. Marcy on way to California Gold Rush.

Hunters, cattlemen, settlers used Canadian River Trails in 1870's and 80's, as Panhandle was opened to civilization.

River's name, "Canadian," came from Spanish for "boxed-in."
