Where to Experience the Anza Trail

The 1,200-mile Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail connects history, culture, and outdoor recreation across 20 counties of Arizona and California. Each site along the Anza Trail is independently operated. Hours, fees, and use rules vary. Many affiliated historic, cultural, and recreation sites on the Anza Trail offer visitor services and facilities. Inquire before you visit.

While there is no official Anza Trail visitor center, the National Park Service hosts a permanent Anza Trail exhibit within the historic 1849 Martinez Adobe on the grounds of the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, California.
