With over 2,000 natural stone arches and hundreds of other extraordinary
geological formations, Arches National Park is a red rock wonderland.
National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of the park combines
unmatched detail with helpful information to offer an invaluable tool
for making the most of your visit to this iconic region. Created in
partnership with local land management agencies, this expertly
researched map features key areas of interest including Devils Garden,
the Windows Section, Sand Flats Recreation Area, the Sovereign area, and
Wolfe Ranch. The print version of the map includes fascinating
information about the park’s geology, archeology, history, and culture,
as well as contact information and regulations.
The trails are
clearly marked and mileage between intersections is provided. River
mileage on the Colorado River is noted as well, for those exploring by
boat. Trail and road summaries provide the location, starting point,
duration, and difficulty for a variety of suggested routes. Mountain
bike trails are color-coded based on degree of difficulty, and
motorcycle and ATV trail use is clearly noted. The map base includes
contour lines and elevations for summits. Some of the many recreation
features include interpretive trails, campgrounds, river access, picnic
areas, and points of interest.
Every Trails Illustrated map
is printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A
full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
