Important and helpful information for each and every site on the map is presented that can be a valuable source of detailed information to help you decide if a specific “site” is where you want to stop and spend some of your time while in the park. For example, is a specific trail you are considering hiking the type and distance suitable for children, or rewarded at the end of the trail with an iconic waterfall, geothermal feature, beautiful landscape and photo op.

At the end of each road section is a page to record those special events and thoughts for future reference.
