Head to the top of every US National Park! Includes the highest points in 60 US National Parks, a lifetime challenge in incredibly diverse, world-class environments. A difficult, far-reaching challenge that brings you from the heights of Denali to the flat expanses of the Everglades. For an easier challenge, check out the subset Contiguous US National Park High Points Challenge (excludes Alaska and Hawaii NPs).

Notes:
• doesn't include the 2 National Parks in US territories
• includes the highpoint of Indiana Dunes State Park, not the highpoint of the National Park sandwiched around it, because it's far more interesting
• includes the majestic peak highpoint of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, not the non-descript HP of just the NP
• includes man-made highpoints in Gateway Arch NP, Everglades NP, Biscayne NP, and Dry Tortugas NP
