The Anza Trail would not exist without the support of partners in communities along the entire 1,200 mile route from Nogales, Arizona to the San Francisco Bay Area. Our partners include federal, state, and local agencies, nonprofits, and dedicated volunteers.
We work with this wonderfully diverse array of partners within the twenty counties and approximately one hundred cities along the trail in Arizona and California. We also engage in partnerships in Mexico. Below are links to just a few of our trail partners. Refer to the County Guides to identify our partners within specific geographic regions.
Mission: To celebrate the life and times of Lt. Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza, Presidial Captain of La Nueva España, now Mexico, explorer, leader of the founders of San Francisco, Ca., peace maker and Governor of New Mexico. This includes an annual forum to share our research results.
