   Really great map of the park.
I found this map really handy when used in conjunction with the book Hiking Death Valley A Guide to Its Natural Wonders and Past Mining by Michel Digonnet. The details in the book were great, but sometimes did not get a great impression of distance or road conditions. The map gives a great perspective of both, as well as alternate routes not described in the book. It's a really sturdy map, and can take punishment, too.

   A Good Map...but Not Necessarily Needed
This is the first time we've used a map like this. It would be a 5 on the Richter scale for hard-core hikers. However, the free map given out by the Death Valley Visitors' Center in many ways was easier to use and had better information about the national park. It would not be necessary for the casual hiker or the "intermediate" user of the trails to have this map.

   Great quality National Geographic Map
The panels are made of strong, weatherproof materials. Easy to read with clearly marked trails, distances, campsites and more. I've always felt these maps are a must in the back country when out hiking or backpacking. I would not set out without it.

   No cell service? No problem
Great map proved to be very valuable to us during our recent trip to Death Valley. Will definitely use it for future trips and look into other locations.

   continuously need to flip it over to view the park. no surrounds, so where is my entrance hwy??
disappointed with the outcome of the trial. Cant get a good overview of Death Valley, have to keep flipping it over as it spreads over both sides of the canyon. It's a lot of work to map out my route. It doesn't show up on the map showing where I want to go. I'm going to have to get another map, possibly from AAA.

   Great Rugged Map!
We purchased this map just for nostalgia, Tunick said. Death Valley has no cell phone service. Now you can download Google maps for offline use, but its just that fun pulling out a map to determine where you want to go next. This is a waterproof and tear-proof map that is still very manageable to fold.

   Be aware: Disney ownership, copyright dates may not be revision dates
No longer are published National Geographic's maps. Nor are they published by National Geographic Enterprises, a corporation wholly owned by The Walt Disney Company. Many of the maps have been reprinted with a recent copyright date, but the cartographic data may not have been updated. I collect maps extensively and own dozens of Trails Illustrated maps, and I have found several titles that were originally printed with a new copyright date, but no revisions to the cartographic data. Amazon has listed the actual date of the copyright infringement suit as July 10, 2003. The ISBN cannot be relied on to distinguish between maps and atlases, as publishers will often retain the same ISBN even when publishing updated editions.

   It’s a Map; a correct one at that. Super durable.
Used this map on our Death Valley trip last week. Super durable and takes "fine-point" sharpie writing. Take it, it seems like it will last.

   Harrison's map is beautiful, but the NG map gives you more detail
This is the map that you need for your project. Harrison's map is beautiful, but the NG map gives you more detail. If you need them, you can now download them to your thumb drive. Tap the play button on your tablet or phone to launch the game. Or go into any FedEx store and print them on their 36 printer for $5 each.

   This is a map masterpiece. I could go on ...
Call it a masterpiece of map-making. However, I could go on and on about the quality of information and illustration, but I will spare you that. If you are planning a trip to Death Valley, you must get this one. Whether you are looking for a new bike, or just want to try something new, this is the team for you. They also help you think long and hard about trying again. For those who want to record videos of trucks trying to get through, I suggest using YouTube's Video Converter.
