According to, the National Park Service manages approximately 417 different units, but the US Congress has only protected 59 of those units as National Parks. These National Parks are located in 27 states and 2 US territories (US Virgin Islands & American Samoa). In total, the National Parks protect 52.2 million acres of land.

Every National Park has a high point and reaching each of these points is one of the tougher peak bagging challenges. How many of the US National Park Highpoints have you visited?
