Trail Map

The route followed by de Anza was designated a National Historic Trail by Congress in 1990.


In 1999 the de Anza trail was selected by the White House Millennium Council and the U.S. Department of Transportation as a National Millennium Trail.


Millennium Trails "are the roads, rivers and routes that best illustrate the American story," according to the White House proclamation.


There is a plan for the Mexican government to develop 600 miles of the trail through Mexico from Culiacan to Nogales. The de Anza Trail may become the first international historic trail in the world.
