US National Park Maps: Illustrated Trail Maps

We recommend getting US National Park maps that feature the roads, hiking trails, points of interest and important recreation details you’ll find in the park.

Maps should be on any National Park packing list. They also make great National Park gifts!

The National Geographic maps are the best because they’re waterproof and tear-resistant. We like the detailed topography as well to get a better sense of the terrain of the park.

National Park Guide Books

Another must-pack item we recommend are US National Park guide books that provide more detail about the points of interest in the park. These travel guides help us to plan our daily itinerary of things to see and do each day.

We also like to use National Park hiking guides that provide all the information we need for specific trails in the park like length, elevation gain, estimated time to complete, and more!
