A Guide for Every Visitor
From Acadia to Zion, you’ll find everything needed to plan your next family vacation. This guide helps you navigate park roadways. And when you’re ready to leave them behind, trails are broken down by region and difficulty so you can pick the perfect one.
Whether your idea of a rejuvenating couples holiday is a long weekend relaxing at Virgin Islands’ Trunk Bay (above) or a few peaceful nights backpacking in the Rocky Mountains, you’ll find it in our National Parks, and this guide will help you make that holiday count.
You’ll find information on all the great National Park Adventures: rafting the Grand Canyon, driving Canyonlands’ White Rim Road, Climbing Mount Whitney, hiking to the top of Yosemite’s Half Dome (above), and probably a few you don’t know about (yet).
A Guide for Every Interest
Hiking is discussed in detail but it’s far from the only terrestrial adventure in our National Parks. From mountain biking Denali Park Road (above) to horseback riding at Grand Teton, the parks offer a seemingly unlimited supply of land-based excursions.
Want to paddle among active glaciers at Glacier Bay, Kenai Fjords, or Wrangell–St. Elias? Or maybe ride the rolling rapids of New River Gorge (above)? Placid alpine lakes? A maze of mangrove forests? The parks have it all. Pack your yak and plan your next paddle adventure.
National Park adventures extend beyond earth’s surface. You can fly high above the Grand Canyon, Gateway Arch, or Acadia’s rocky islands. And then there’s Alaska, where most remote adventures are bush plane-powered (just remember to check for stowaways!).

For maps bigger is better. This guide uses all its larger trim size to provide readers with the best map-reading experience possible. You’ll find park maps, detail maps, and region maps.
Tips and Recommendations
The author concludes each section with a series of helpful suggestions about when to visit, how to escape the crowds, things to make sure you do, others to skip, even a few beyond the park.
