National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Grand Canyon West covers some of the less frequented but just as wondrous landscape of Grand Canyon National Park, from Powell Plateau to the park’s western boundary. Expertly researched and created in partnership with the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and others, the map also covers the surrounding areas of Kaibab National Forest, Hualapai Havasupai Indian Reservations and Parashant National Monument. With so much of the area being backcountry, the map also includes useful backcountry information, regulations and safety tips, in addition to a backcountry use area guide, color-coded by degree of experience required.
Clearly marked trails, including unmaintained primitive trails, will guide you around the area, whether you’re traveling by foot, horse, mountain bike, or motorized vehicle. The map base includes contour lines and elevations for summits, and river mileage is noted for the Colorado River. Backcountry zones within the park are marked with their boundaries and labeled with their National Park Service code. Some of the many recreation features include campgrounds and campsites, boat launches, ATV trails, scenic viewpoints, and interpretive trails.
Every Trails Illustrated map is printed on “Backcountry Tough” waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation. We love technology and enjoy the convenience of GPS, but you can’t plan a trip on a phone screen and navigation doesn’t work where there’s no cell signal. Start your next trip on the right foot with a high-quality folding travel map. Make the most of your next adventure, even if you lose GPS or cell signals. You’ll always be on the correct route with our folding travel maps. Your adventure starts here!
