   Good companion !
Mitzna and Daschle both said they enjoyed the "grassy" trails, paved and partly paved roads. Easy to fold and keep in place.
   Great map for hiking and driving through Joshua Tree
The map is highly detailed with important landmarks clearly marked and between points on the map. Before you embark on a hike, it's important to know how far apart you are. The map is waterproof and tearproof making it easy to carry and pull out of the pack whenever necessary. This is far superior to the National Park Service's map. Highly recommend to have this for full enjoyment of the park, said Blair.
   Map missing many park features
We visited Joshua Tree recently with this map in hand and were shocked at how much was missing. Half or more of the stops and points of interest in the park are simply missing from this map. It looked good we got there, but then realized it was just a matter of time.
   Map it!
Nat Geo maps are always good. If you are planning on backpacking, mountaineering or other outdoor activity, they are highly recommended.
   Good basic map of Joshua Tree NP
Even with the assistance of National Geographic, it is impossible to get a comprehensive trail map of Joshua Tree National Park. It's a good basic map that gives an overview of the entire park and some of the trails, and I appreciate that it is topographically correct," said Robert Sattler, executive director of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The Snuggie is also waterproof and tear-resistant, making it a definite plus if you want to take it hiking with you.
   A lot of detail
It's great to see the research being done, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. Trails are mostly plowed and dirt roads are passable. It also locates abandoned mines which are listed on the map.
   Pretty outdated at this time
It is good for an overall overview of the trails, but beware that a lot of them are not officially or officially recognized by the park. The large scale does not help much in the little narrow canyon climbs, and it is easy to take a wrong turn, he said. It's nothing serious at the end, but you will bump your navigation skills, and keep your eyes open.
I live about 30 minutes from the park and go hiking every weekend. There are also some trails that don't exist, ones that exist that aren't marked, and the distances are often off by varying degrees. It has one job and does not do well and for the price, it is unacceptable. However, I use it more of a guide when planning trips.
   Kind of accurate
Details of the complaint are not disclosed in the memo. I walked a trail twice, but couldn't find a turn off for a trail depicted on the map. None of the park maps showed the entire trail. I think the trail has closed, and the map is not updated.
