    Poorly organized

    Very poor organization.. ALL the maps are in the back are also poorly labeled in the text, so you are left thumbing back and forth, back and forth. We went to 5 national parks in a week in Utah, and I barely cracked the book; when I picked it up, I quickly gave up. The NPS maps got us to all the best trails and superseded this book.

    One good companion

    If you have to have only one book along, this is the one. Look, you could write a book that's this thick on Canyonlands alone! What the author tries to do is pare it down to what you need to get around and back again. There is just too much to see in ANY of these places to get it super detailed. However, that said, he does a great job here. You're warned to be on the look out for rock cairans, what trails have handholds (which don't, which can be just as important!) and which pitches are likely to be the steepest. If the trailhead is a little difficult to find, you're pretty much told how to get there anyway (pay attention, details matter). There is a little bit of the "overview" asspect to the guide, but again, he is covering an enormous amount of territory. Unless you want to carry a detailed book for each park, this ONE is going to be the best purchase you can make. If you really want to know if a guide book is any good, go back to camp, stretch out in the sleeping bag and read about the trail you just covered. You're going to know right away if things don't square up. It's a good sized guide. It'll put a little more weight in your pack, but IT IS A STRAIGHT UP "SQUARE" GUIDE!
