National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Grand Canyon West covers
some of the less frequented but just as wondrous landscape of Grand
Canyon National Park, from Powell Plateau to the park's western
boundary. Expertly researched and created in partnership with the
National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management
and others, the map also covers the surrounding areas of Kaibab National
Forest, Hualapai Havasupai Indian Reservations and Parashant National
Monument. With so much of the area being backcountry, the map also
includes useful backcountry information, regulations and safety tips, in
addition to a backcountry use area guide, coded by degree of experience
Clearly marked trails, including unmaintained
primitive trails, will guide you around the area, whether you’re
traveling by foot, horse, mountain bike, or motorized vehicle. The map
base includes contour lines and elevations for summits, and river
mileage is noted for the Colorado River. Backcountry zones within the
park are marked with their boundaries and labeled with their National
Park Service code. Some of the many recreation features include
campgrounds and campsites, boat launches, ATV trails, scenic viewpoints,
and interpretive trails.
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.
