This is book number 249 in the National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map series.
- Waterproof - Tear-Resistant - Topographic Map
At 13.2 million acres, Wrangell-St. Elias could fit Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Glacier, Olympic, and Yosemite National Parks within its borders with plenty of room to spare. It stretches from one of the tallest peaks in North America, Mount Stain Elias at 18,008 feet, to to the ocean. More than a quarter of the park is covered with glaciers, including the tidewater Hubbard Glacier, piedmont Malaspina Glacier, and valley Nabesna Glacier.
Arrive in the area using one of only two paved roads or use the mapped landing areas, seaplane bases and anchorage sites and continue your exploration with mapped hiking trails and primitive routes. Two insets show detailed access to the Kennicott Valley and Nabesna. Explore the backcountry using the map's contour lines, elevations, labeled peaks and summits, water features, selected waypoints, areas of wooded cover and color-coded boundaries between different land designations. Other recreation and adventure points of interest include ranger stations, campgrounds, trail shelters, public cabins, restrooms and scenic viewpoints. Some additional map features are background information of the various public lands in the area, wilderness safety tips, bear encounter guidelines and essential contact information.
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.
