Established: August 15, 1990. Description:Trail follows the route over which a party of Spanish colonists, led by Captain Juan Bautista de Anza, set out from Mexico to establish an overland route to California in 1775. This party of 30 families, a dozen soldiers, and 1,000 cattle, horses, and mules spent three months traversing the deserts of the Southwest before reaching the missions of the California coast. Another three months were spent traveling up the Pacific coast to the Golden Gate, where the city of San Francisco now stands. They sought to build a presidio and mission overlooking the Golden Gate and secure it from threats by the Russians and British. In 1975 and 1976, an expedition reenactment took place from Horcasitas, Mexico, to San Francisco, CA.
Legth: 1,200 miles.
