Once Anza passed Picacho Peak, his entourage left the known Spanish empire. Common but non-native palm trees were brought to the area long after Anza passed through.

Picacho Peak was a landmark for the Anza Expedition.

While no recreation trail segments exist in Pinal County, the county is actively working on a Trails Master Plan. Pinal County, with the help of the National Park Service, will begin construction of Anza Trail segments in the coming years.

Anza and Font spent a day at Casa Grande National Monument.

Read what Font and Anza wrote about Casa Grande by clicking their names. Font's journal is especially interesting.
