Exploring History, Culture and Nature

What is a National Trail? Much like a national park, a national trail is created by an act of Congress. There are currently 30 national scenic and historic trails in the National Trails System. National scenic trails are hike-through trails designated for their natural beauty, environmental importance, and opportunity for outdoor recreation. National historic trails commemorate historic trade, migration, and other routes important to American culture.

The 1,200-mile Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail connects history, culture, and recreation across 20 counties in Arizona and California.
