ARTICLE/ PRIMARY RECORD. The uniqueness of the Heritage Trail is that it is based on two cultures, the Ohlone and the Spanish, that were unknown to each other until 1769. This is the story of two peoples—the indigenous population and their culture, and the coming of the Spanish and European colonization. This trail contains historic and archæologic resources which span a wide spectrum of human history on the Peninsula. Since the Portolá expedition these stories intertwined.
