More than just a map, National Geographic Trails Illustrated topographic maps are designed to take you into the wilderness and back. Printed on tear-resistant, waterproof material, this map can go anywhere you do. Each map is based on exact reproductions of USGS topographic map information, updated, customized, and enhanced to meet the unique features of each area. The maps include valuable wilderness tips and Leave No Trace guidelines, along with updated trails, trailheads, points of interest, campgrounds, and much more. With a new color palette and stunning shaded relief, backcountry navigation has never been easier.
I am so glad I bought this map (and two for my hiking buddies) before our trip to Mt Rogers. The park headquarters was closed on the weekend and we were so glad we already had the map. It shows all the trails, campsites, and the numbers of the gravel/dirt forest service roads so you can get to the trailheads.
