The Day Hikes of Zion 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 88 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:
  • 29 day hikes ranked based upon Jake’s 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 hikes and hikes with steep drop-offs 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″

    Jake’s maps are perfect for trip planning. This map far exceeds anything I have been able to find online from the NPS. The price is more than reasonable for the quality of the product. I would recommend this to anyone even remotely considering a trip to Zion. I appreciate how the backcountry campsites are included and i really like the color coded trails. It makes a huge difference in planning if you know how rugged the trails will be before you get there. If you’re wondering whether or not you should purchase this map, just buy it. It’s much better and more convenient than anything else I have found.

    Wow. That’s all I can say. What a great map. I can’t imagine all the work that went into making this. This is far more practical and applicable than the NPS map. I like the color coding, distance sorting, and the descriptions. If you are planning a trip to Zion and planning on any hiking at all I’d say this is a necessary resource.

    Jake – maybe market this on Amazon. That’s where I looked first. Glad I stumbled upon your YouTube hiking videos and found your site. The videos are great as well.
