Anza Trail Along Santa Cruz River: Tumacácori to Tubac Virtual Hike
Hike the Anza Trail along the Santa Cruz River: Tumacácori to Tubac. In 177576 Juan Bautista de Anza led nearly 300 people on an epic journey to establish the first non-Native settlement at San Francisco Bay. Today, the 1,200-mile Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail connects history, culture, and outdoor recreation from Nogales, Arizona, to the San Francisco Bay Area in California. The first section of trail established in Arizona was the four-mile stretch between Tumacácori NHP and Tubac Presidio State Historic Park.
Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, WNPA has ceased operations at our park stores, eliminating a crucial source of funding for our more than 70 partner parks. Help WNPA continue our mission of advancing education, interpretation, research, and community engagement at national parks throughout the temporary closure of our stores by shopping or donating at our online store. Your support during this critical time helps ensure WNPA can continue sharing the national park experience with everyone.
