However, if you are looking for the best hikes, backpacking trips, climbs, etc., you will NOT find it here. You also won't any truly useful hiking maps. You'll find general driving maps with many of the park's most popular features listed.
Start with this book and compliment it with specific hiking guides to specific parks (i.e. take a look at many of the Falcon hiking guides), and also get yourself some detailed and waterproof NatGeo trail maps, which are made for most of the popular national parks.
a book to be enjoyed and enjoyed... and then, just when you start to put it down, something else catches your eye....
