Begin Your Journey...Welcome to the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail - 1210 miles of deserts, rivers, oak woodlands, shorelines, grasslands, and chaparral. It's as urban as Tucson, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and as rural and wild as Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Entwined in a city or isolated from civilization, this trail offers adventure, excitement, and an opportunity to experience history in the places where it occurred.
The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail stretches across 20 counties of Arizona and California. There are many Places to Go and Things to Do, including learning history, exploring historic sites and hiking scenic trails. Each site is independently operated. Hours, fees, and use rules vary. Contact individual sites for details.
