The Day Hikes of Grand Teton National Park Map Guide was designed to simply answer the question, “Where should we hike today?” These maps take the wonderful intuitiveness and visualization from a beautiful topographical map that Jake built from the ground up and couple it with short descriptions of all 48 day hikes that you’d get from a book to get you a sense of the trail. The magic happens with Jake’s ranking of the trails using his expertise of comparing all of them to help answer the question, “Should we hike trail A or trail B?”

To answer the question of “How hard is this trail?”, this map uses a slightly different approach. Instead of using the very subjective easy/moderate/difficult, the descriptions are grouped by distance. A brief look at the elevation change, description, and color-coded trails let you know if it is something you want to tackle. Trail steepness is calculated as level (green), moderate incline (yellow), and steep (red), so you can quickly see if the elevation change is spread out over a hike or all in one spot.

This waterproof map guide can be easily thrown into your backpack. You won’t have to spend time wondering if the trail is one you should hike, you can easily choose and go.

Map features are:
  • 48 day hikes ranked by Jake recommendations
  • Color coded trail segments indicate trail steepness (See product photos. If the trail is green, it’s level. If the trail is yellow, it’s got some incline. If it’s red, it’s just plain steep.)
  • Descriptions give you a sense of the hike
  • Distances labeled between junctions and/or features
  • Family friendly and early season hikes labeled
  • Topographic lines help determine elevation change
  • Printed on recyclable, synthetic paper to be waterproof and tear resistant
  • Map folds out to 39″ x 26″

    I bought this map along with the Day Hikes of Yellowstone National Park Map Guide for an upcoming trip and I couldn’t be happier. These maps, along with Jake’s hike reviews on YouTube, have helped me tremendously in the planning of our trip. I have purchased a handful of other guide books for the area, but these maps are going to be my go to resources while in GTNP and Yellowstone. I particularly appreciate that each hike has a description, they are color coded by area, organized by distance, and of course, ranked in order of Jake’s recommendations. All of this info on a map that takes up very little room in my daypack. Jake, thank you very much for putting these maps together. I truly appreciate the effort that went into making them and I feel much more prepared for our trip because of them.

    I ordered this on Friday and received it in the mail Monday, from Kalispell Montana`to Charleston SC (East Coast)! With, no less, a personal note. Awesome Timing. The map is just wonderful. I have been on many of these trails over many years of living near and now going to Yellowstone, and now I can plan some new hikes for my next trips. I love that the Hikes are sorted by distance and have the color-coded trail segments by difficulty rating in 1/4 mile sections and the topographic lines. Getting older now and need some easier treks these days. From his awesome videos and stunning photos I can also finish sorting through over 15,000 Yellowstone photos taken over the years and I can also use Jake’s map here at home to help me figure out where I was for each set of photos and get them organized to put in my scrapbooks. These maps have a LOT OF HARD WORK put in them and are well worth the cost – and will save me time comparing hikes later. Sturdy map and will travel well – and not frustrating to re-fold. Thanks a bunch.
