      Mission expansion came to an end in , when mission bells rang in Sonoma. The California Missions Foundation was created in as the only organization dedicated to restoring and protecting all 21 mission structures and their contents, with the goal of preserving California's rich history. Today a growing number of people, calling themselves California Mission Walkers, hike the mission trail route, usually in segments between the missions. Walking the trail is a way to connect with the history of the missions. For some it represents a spiritual pilgrimage, inspired by Jesuit priest Richard Roos' book, Christwalk.

      The California missions (and the California Indians) fared badly during the gold rush days. The walls and floor of the old mission church at San Fernando Rey were dug up several times in a futile search for the “padre’s gold?” With the influx of 49ers, many of the old missions became campsites and way stations on the trip north. California's 21 missions are moving historical reminders of the first non-Native American forays onto the American Pacific Coast. From to , Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries founded missions from San Diego to Sonoma, all of which can still be visited today. From the story of Father Junipero Serra's tortuous journey to establish the first mission in San Diego to the well-known legend.
