Travel routes-both old and new- traverse the many regions of Pima County. These routes are layered in the history of those that first surveyed them, constructed them and used them for millennia and into the present day. Corridors link our world together. As Pima County continues to invest in new and improved trails, river parks, and roads, the Cultural Resources and Historic Preservation Division is enhancing the public experience of these routes with signage that interprets the history of corridors and those groups that paused along them, on their way.

From the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail to the Chuck Huckleberry LOOP (A Trail through Time) the history of the Santa Cruz River Valley is being brought to life through images and stories - Water Is Life; Life on the Floodplain; Early Agricultural Engineers; Locating Anza Trailheads and Mileage; and more to come. This is just the beginning. As other trail connections are established or improved, more stories of Pima County will be told about our history and our region.
