The 2nd edition is the same size and format as the first edition. Notes have been updated and include details such as the new huts and changed food drop facilities. In recent years they have also completed a number of off-track walks in the area and decided to not add these into the guide as it would have made the book heavier and would not be of relevance to most Larapinta walkers.
The Larapinta Trail guide has 160 pages, 121 colour photographs, 20 topographic maps (one for each days walk), ISBN 1 920995 14 0, published 2015. An detailed on-line review of the first edition of the book is available at the aushiker website. This is an all colour production with full track notes for both directions along the trail. The colour topographic maps and notes have been colour coded for each direction to reduce confusion about which notes are currently being followed. Gradient profiles are provided at the same scale as those used in all our books. Each chapter describes one of the 20 sections of the trail plus the side trip to Glen Helen is included. A large background section includes the history of the area and notes on geology, climate, vegetation and wildlife are included. A comprehensive section on Safety and Trip Planning are provided.
As prerdicted, this walk has become a classic well-known walk as it traverses some excellent desert scenery. Water has been provided by park management at most of the regular campsites along the trail.
