Alaska is a land so vast that is boggles the imagination. It is so large that it could easily contain the next three largest states: Texas, California, and Montana and still have room left over. Despite its large size Alaska has very few inhabitants making it the state with the lowest population density. Alaska is known for its dramatic, diverse terrain of wide-open spaces, mountains and forests, with abundant wildlife and many small towns.
A majority of Alaska, sixty percent, is owned and managed by the Federal Government. These lands are open to the public and offer a wide range of activities from sightseeing in Denali National Park to river-running and fishing on one of many wild rivers. Many visitors to Alaska choose to arrive via cruise ship through the famous Inside Passage. The Alaska Adventure Map shows all of these features and more from the temperate rain forest in the Pan Handle to the arctic tundra of the North Slope. This is a state of diverse and wide open spaces that are still truly wild.
Alaska's most famous hotspots, like Denali, Anchorage, the Inside Passage, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, and many others are clearly marked on the map. The boundaries of National Parks, National Forests, Natural Reserves and Wildlife Refuges are all clearly marked. With such a wealth of content, the map is an ideal complement to National Geographic's Inside Passage Destination Map or any other guidebook to the area.
Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
Denali National Park and Preserve covers a staggering six million acres of truly wild and pristine wilderness, bisected by a single road. The crown jewel of the park is the towering 20,320 foot Mount McKinley, North America's tallest peak. Expertly researched and created in partnership with local land management agencies, National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of Denali National Park provides an unparalleled tool for exploring this remarkable region. Key areas of interest featured on this map include Denali State Park; Kroto, Moose Creek, and Lake Creek recreation rivers; Lake Minchumina; and the Kantishna Mining District. The print version of the map includes a detailed inset of the park entrance and headquarters.
If you wish to camp in the park, a chart of campground information that includes the distance from the entrance, number and type of spaces, facilities, access, and contact information for making your reservations will help you plan your stay. Private vehicle travel in the park is limited, but this map's coverage of the shuttle bus system will ensure you have the knowledge you need to access the entire park. Helpful information about regulations, avoiding close encounters with bears, hiking in the Kantishna Mining District, and safety tips, as well as clearly marked campgrounds, rental cabins, bush airstrips, trailheads, and more will help you enjoy all the park has to offer. The map base includes contour lines and elevations for summits, passes and many lakes.
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.
