Trails link people to landscapes and culture

Now more than ever we need our parks, natural areas and trails. Together we can build and improve accessibility and put the national scenic and historic trails on the map and into your home!

Trails link people to landscapes and culture. During this time of the pandemic, we find ourselves limited in who we can travel with and where we can go. With a national scenic or historic trail in every state and growing opportunities to access the trails virtually, you can enjoy and appreciate the scenic landscapes and history of the country.

We invite you to stay local or go virtual and explore the National Trails System. With your gift today of $50, $100 or $250 or more, the Partnership for the National Trails System can continue to expand your experiences with these remarkable natural, cultural, scenic, and historic corridors.

El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail connects museums, visitor centers and other sites along a historic trail once used for settlement from Mexico City across Texas to Louisiana. As a part of this “Royal Road”, the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park showcases missions, aqueducts and other remnants of everyday life including Mission San José, which turns 300 years old in 2020!

Did you know that certain foods like chocolate, pumpkins and corn traveled up El Camino Real de los Tejas? You will find history and culture presented in the video gallery for the park where you can learn how to make 3 traditional recipes.

We know that you learn in a variety of ways and through a range of experiences. Help the Partnership work to diversify interpretive programs of the National Scenic and Historic Trails by making a gift today!

With gratitude,

Karen Crossley
