The Larapinta Trail guide has 160 pages, 121 colour photographs, 20 topographic maps (one for each days walk) and full track notes for both directions along the trail. Gradient profiles are provided at the same scale as those used in all our books. Each chapter describes a section of the trail plus the side trip to Glen Helen is included.

The background section includes history of the area and notes on geology, climate, vegetation and wildlife. A comprehensive section on Safety and Trip Planning are provided. 

For the 3rd edition, we have reorganised the guide into 12 chapters to match the national park sections. Of course, many walk the track in less than 20 days, with 14 to 18 days being the most common. Details include shelter huts, food drop facilities and the new section of track through Ellery Creek North.

This walk has become a classic well-known walk as it traverses some excellent arid scenery. Water has been provided by park management at most of the regular campsites along the trail.
