Concise well written guide to the roads in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks. It's a great size for a pocketbook, backpack or dash. It's full of history, wildlife info, but the detailed small maps are the best feature. Instead of working with a folding, flat map of the entire area, which is what is provided by the parks, you can just flip to the area you are interested in and get a lot of detailed info in a much more user friendly format. Great deal for the price.

Our family just returned from a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks. This guide is absolutely invaluable; we used it every day. It's easy to read and tells every point of interest along the road, including where the next restroom, picnic area, or scenic pullout is. Since each page covers no more than 10 miles of road, it's extremely detailed. I highly recommend it. I just noticed that National Geographic does a similar road guide for Yosemite, and I will be buying that one, too.

This road guide put the park into perspective as to where and how far the best trails and geysers were located. We used this little book in route more than any other book we purchased to prepare for our Yellowstone trip.
For the first timer at these parks, this book is extremely useful!

Went to Yellowstone in June 2010, and took this book and several others along. We never used the other books once we were there. Only this one. It is an EXCELLENT guidebook that allows you to follow along as you drive through the park. You will know where you are and what points of interest there are each mile. It enabled us to see things that we would have never realized were there to see.

We used this book on a family vacation in 2010. As my husband drove through Yellowstone and the Tetons, I read the book's brief background notes about many spots. Although the parks' official (and free) map is sufficient to get around the parks, the added details of this road guide were very helpful for us to plan our trip and not get lost. We liked the animal spotting notations as well.

Excellent road guide for these two parks. The size makes it easy to keep handy, maps are detailed enough to keep you going in the right direction at all times!

I thought this was a pretty good book for what it is--not a lot of detail but it lays out all of the major things to see and gives the mile markers of where they are located. I thought I would use it a lot but I really didn't. The maps they give you at the national parks were good enough for me and allowed me to find what I was looking for. There was some good info in this book about the places that was not in the NPS paper, so I found some of that marginally useful. The best use for this book would be if you have someone with you that can tell you what's coming up while you're driving so you can decide if you want to stop or not.

I just returned from 2 weeks in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. I purchased several books before our trip and I can honestly tell you - this book was the most used. Each page outlines about 14 miles of roadway and tells you the sights along the 14 miles. It highlights wildlife and turnouts and has a little history about any pull offs as well. If I were planning on driving though Yellowstone or the Grand Tetons - I would buy this book. It is extremely useful and detailed - don't leave home without it....
