How would Joseph Smith be so familiar with the Arabian trail?

Nephi describes the family’s journey from Shazer to Nahom in 1 Nephi 16:13-34. What are the odds that his description would accurately describe the only survivable route through Arabia (the Frankincense Trail)?

Nephi’s description includes:

The Frankincense Trail in Arabia was a trade route being used in Lehi’s day which has enough water and adequate terrain for camels to travel on. 

How would Joseph know so much about this part of the world?
