Known for its large population of bears and other native wildlife, the Alaska Peninsula is a popular location for wildlife viewing and other outdoor adventures. National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of Katmai National Park and Wilderness will guide you to heart of this spectacular area. Created in cooperation with the National Park Service and others, this expertly researched map covers with unparalleled detail not only the entirety of Katmai National Park and Wilderness but also neighboring Katmai National Preserve, Becharof National Wildlife Refuge and Wilderness, McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge areas, and Shelikof Strait. Inset maps provide extra detail of Alagnak Wild River and Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes.
Arrive in the area using mapped landing areas, seaplane bases and anchorage sites and continue your exploration with mapped hiking trails and primitive routes. 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.
