The national parks of the southwest draw millions of visitors each year with their surreal scenery and extraordinary events. In the shadow of these parks are hidden treasures, amazing opportunities for adventure and a completely new world worthy to explore. Parks100 created the “Explore Five More” campaign to encourage you to experience these lesser known places.

Organized in 2016 to celebrate the National Park Service centennial, Parks100 was a partnership of over 25 entities from Utah, Nevada and Arizona, representing national park service entities, federal land agencies, state parks and destination marketing organizations. Moving forward with the Explore Five More campaign, we’re here to help you discover the hidden gems hiding among the shadows of our beautiful national parks.
