National Geographic’s wall map of National Parks of the United States highlights the nearly 400 magnificent parks across America. The country is represented in subtle earth-tones with shaded mountain relief and intricately drawn river systems. Colorful photos capture some of the diverse landscapes preserved and protected by the national park system.
Separate inset maps provide detail and descriptions of seven of the parks: Yellowstone, Yosemite, Acadia, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Everglades, and Zion. Parks located in U.S. territories are included on an inset world map.
