Juan Bautista De Anza
National Historic Trail
|Anza’s 1775-1776 route
From 1771-76 Juan Bautista de Anza lead 240 emigrants 1200 miles from Mexico to California and this National Historic Trail established in 1990 preserves the route in a collection of driving/hiking recreational paths. Much of the trail passes through Maricopa, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz and Yuma counties in little known “who-knew” pockets of history.
The national park service has posted a very cool interactive mapping tool online and is asking you to assist in documenting and drawing attention to the Anza Trail. Just go to the MapCollaborator site and upload your info. Once approved by NPS staff, entered data will be shared on the web.
