New Guide to the National Parks Now Online

Text by Laura Buckley

When planning a trip to the National Parks you will inevitably have questions–and the National Parks Owner's Guide 2009, a comprehensive online trip planning tool from the National Parks Foundation, will help you answer them.  How long will it take to hike to Fort Bowie and back in Fort Bowie National Historic Site? (At least two hours.)  When's the best time to go to Guadalupe Mountains National Park?  (After 11pm to see the stars.)  What's the deepest lake in the U.S.? (Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park.) 

The guide is fit for both the novice park goer and extreme explorer, complete
with must see sights, insider hints, detailed maps, and photos–all for free.  "Every
citizen is a part owner of the National Park System, and this guide has
everything you need to get started planning your trip in one place," says Jamie Patten, senior vice president of the National Park Foundation.  "Getting outside and into the parks has never been easier."
