To assist you in finding these parks and learning more about how our freedoms came about, the Tour of Honor offers the opportunity to earn a special certificate – MASTER TRAVELER AWARD – awarded by the Iron Butt Association when you successfully complete the challenge of the Tour of Honor National Park Tour (TOH NPT). Visit at least 50 NPS properties from the list of selected NPS sites in no less than 25 states between April 1st and October 31st on your motorcycle. Collect the NPS passport stamps at each location and photograph your flag, bike and NPS property on-site sign.
A spreadsheet, identifying the sites which are eligible for the TOH NPT, as well as information on each site, is available here. A GPX file is located here. These are the only NPS sites eligible for the TOH NPT. The NPS has many more properties and parks, but only those listed on the spreadsheet are eligible for the TOH NPT.
The National Park Service is the gatekeeper for all information on any/all NPS properties. It is your responsibility to confirm with NPS any information about the parks prior to planning a TOH NPT route, or setting out to ride a TOH NPT. The NPS occasionally changes hours of operation and even the locations of Visitors Centers, so consider this spreadsheet merely an example of the information available. You are responsible for your own ride, so verify the information with the NPS prior to setting out on your ride. Yes, the Visitors Center has to be open in order for you to obtain the NPS passport stamp, adding a new twist to route planning!
The route plan is up to you. The rules for completing a TOH NPT are available here.
