Overview

More than 65 million people visit the national parks annually-and overcrowding has become a serious problem. So we sent our authors out to hit the trails and campsites to figure out how to beat the crowds and enjoy an unspoiled experience of nature.

Our authors take you to the most spectacular landscapes in the western U.S. and provide advice for every kind of park visitor, from the day-tripper who wants to see the highlights quickly to the back-country camper to the families traveling with kids. This incredibly detailed, complete guide covers every kind of activity available in each park, from hiking to bird watching, with a range of sports for visitors of all ages and skill levels.

Completely updated, this new edition of Frommer's National Parks of the American West also includes reviews of park lodges, camping, and nearby accommodations to help you plan all aspects of your trip. Exact prices are listed for every establishment and activity. No other guide offers such detailed, candid reviews...or such honest advice.

Complete with maps of every park, including detailed maps of hiking trails in the major parks.

Meet the Author

Residents of northern New Mexico since 1970, Don and Barbara Laine have traveled extensively throughout the Rocky Mountains and the Southwest, spending as much time as possible in the outdoors. They have written Frommer’s guides to Utah, Colorado, and Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks. The Laines have also authored Little-Known Southwest and Best Short Hikes in Arizona for The Mountaineers; and The New Mexico Guide for Fulcrum Publishing.

A Denver-based freelance writer, Eric Peterson has contributed to numerous Frommer’s guides covering the American West, and written Frommer's Montana & Wyoming, Frommer's Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, and Ramble: A Field Guide to the USA (www.speckpress.com). Peterson also writes about travel and other topics for such publications as ColoradoBiz, United Hemispheres, Delta Sky, and the New York Daily News. In his free time, he's an avid camper and hiker, a lifelong Broncos fan, and part-time rock star (at least in the eyes of his niece Olivia).

Jack Olson, a longtime resident of Denver, wanders the Rockies and the entire country as a freelance photographer and writer. He writes travel articles and supplies photographs for AAA magazines, and his photos can be seen in such publications as Backpacker, Audubon, Sierra, and National Geographic Books.

Shane Christensen, a California native, has written extensively about the United States, South America, and Western Europe for the Berkeley Guides, Fodor’s, and the Wall Street Journal. He is also a coauthor of Frommer’s South America and Frommer’s Argentina & Chile.
