The Anza Trail was created by Lt. Col. Juan Bautista de Anza when he made the treacherous 9-month trek from below Hermosillo, Sonora Mexico, to the East Bay of San Francisco, California, in 1775-1776. The route Anza and his troops took with 198 settlers was retraced in 1996 by way of horseback, bicycles and vehicles. This celebration trek commemorating the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail was completed in 53 days.
Citizens in Santa Cruz County have completed a 4.5-mile segment of the trail from Tumacacori National Historical Park to Tubac Presidio State Historic Park. Since Anza was Captain at Tubac Presidio, this segment of the trail is particularly interesting. The trail is marked and interpreted along a five-mile segment of the Santa Cruz River in Tucson where the Anza Trail Coalition of Arizona has planted a tree in Anza's memory along the Paseo de los Arboles. About 13 miles of the trail can be experienced in Maricopa County in a pristine setting on land managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
General Information:
  • The trail crosses the Santa Cruz River several times. River height may make crossing dangerous.
  • Hiking the trail can be very hot during the middle of the day. Take at least one quart of drinking water per person. Do not drink the river water.
  • Beware of rattlesnakes and other desert dwellers and prickly desert plants.
  • Keep on the trail. Since use of the trail is provided as a courtesy of the private owners it is necessary that we all respect the private property surrounding it.
This is a hiking and equestrian trail only.
