This Nat Geo map is very well done and serves as an excellent planning and get-to-the-trailhead guide for hikers in Rocky Mountain National Park. Not only is the map detailed and easily readable, the paper stock is tear and stain resistant, meaning this can be taken into the field.
That I did not do. Its detail means it is fairly large. I couldn't see myself folding and unfolding this map, particularly in a wind, on the trail. I got smaller one page route maps from the Nat Park Service and the internet after I had honed in on the trails I wanted to take for day hikes. I did not do any overnights. I do imagine this would be nice to have on a back-country overnight trek when one has planning time before and after the day's movement or during breaks.
Having said that, this is a very high quality map and served its purpose well for me as planning tool and general terrain reference.
EVERYTHING we needed was on this map! Our backcountry campsites, all of the trails, elevation, etc. We did find, however, that what we thought was mileage was actually in kilometers (we think - there really was no key that I could find to figure out what the numbers on the trails meant...).
This was absolutely essential for two individuals who were new to the park and hiking in some dangerous terrain. I don't think we would have been able to find our way without it, especially when we had to take a few detours due to the weather. About half of the trail we hiked was covered in snow, so it was difficult to find any trailmarkers.
Make sure you pair this map with a good compass, otherwise a map will be of zero value (not even as TP due to the texture).
I would buy this again and would recommend it to a friend.
