National Geographic Trail Maps – An essential tool for exploring America’s top National Parks
National Geographic’s line of Trails Illustrated maps includes detailed topographic trail maps for all of America’s top National Parks. Featuring updated and easy-to-read trail networks, important points of interest, and the key recreation information needed to make your next National Park visit an adventure.
National Geographic and the National Parks share a deep legacy dating back to the publication of an entire issue of National Geographic Magazine in 1916 titled 'Land of the Best'. That issue helped advocate for the creation of the National Park Service, later that year. Over the years, National Geographic has helped establish, preserve, or restore Sequoia, Katmai, Carlsbad Caverns, Shenandoah, Mesa Verde and Redwood National Parks. It has also publicized the parks through at least 500 books, articles, and maps, not to mention dozens of television documentaries.

Pros- well finished, water resistant, easy folding, easy to read.
Save the content these maps are identical in size each being 25” x 37” YPK scale is 1:16,720 1 inch = 2 mi. with 100’ contour level. GTNP scale is 1:80,000 1 inch = 1.3 mi 100’ contour level. These maps are printed on waterproof, tear-resistant paper.
YPK is split in half (north / south) with a generous overlap. Robust legend includes trail summaries including length, elevation gain, hiking time and difficulty. Various other panels describe wildlife, thermal areas and backcountry hiking.
GTNP has the entire area on one side (including Jackson Hole) the reverse is a detailed map of the east side of the park with a scale of 1 inch=.5 mi. from Granite Canyon to Leigh Lake.
As mentioned elsewhere we are not of the hiking ilk, other than the short easy 1-2 hour jaunts to get away from the parking lots. In terms of general orientation, finding locations mentioned in other tomes, and getting around these are essential maps. In terms of a hiking guide with trailheads and enough detail to use in the field I fear these would be lacking. Used in combination with National Geographic Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks Road Guide: The Essential Guide for Motorists I plan them to use them as my principal navigation tools.
I recently purchased the 2008 revision. Unfolded, the map paper is the same size as the 1998 revision, but feels substantially heavier. The park map, however, is now a bit bigger and is split with the north half of the park on one side and the south on the other (with a generous overlap between the two). The written information about the park that was previously on the back is still present, but is reduced in size and located in several smaller boxes spread around the map. A new feature is that the information on the map does not end abruptly at the park boundary. Thus, for example, if you use the north entrance to the park you can see some additional trails, picnic, camping, and fishing areas marked to the north of the park as you come in on US 89. I don't use it, but the map now indicates that it is GPS compatible with a full UTM grid.
TI's Yellowstone map is worth having if you plan to do any hikes longer than a few miles. The 2008 is a good buy, particularly if you have an older revision that is showing some wear. If your older revision is in good shape (they are durable after all!) you can probably get by with it.
The northern and southern section of the map are separated on the front and back of the map allowing for a more detailed view f both sections. All of the trails listed were correct and up to date in all the areas we traveled in the park.
As a user of many other brands of maps in the past, I can say this map (and Nat Geo in general) is the best option.
