Our mission is to connect, strengthen and amplify a vibrant network of partners united to preserve, enhance and promote National Historic & Scenic Trails

Picture yourself with one foot on each side of the Continental Divide, for miles on end. To your right, the Atlantic Ocean; to your left, the Pacific. You’re surrounded by mountains, or high deserts, walking across America…

Or picture yourself retracing the footsteps of pioneers on the California Trail or Mormon Pioneer Trail, dust on your boots, headed for a new land of opportunity.

Or riding horseback with a cart train or covered wagon train on the El Camino Real de los Tejas, bringing supplies and goods to Spanish missions and posts.

These experiences, and hundreds more, can be found in every state across the nation, on America’s National Trails System
