Thinking About The John Muir Trail? Here’s One You’re Not Going To Want To Miss

In Backpacking, Books, Travel



Passing through some of the most beautiful and rugged country, the John Muir Trail epitomizes High Sierra backpacking to many a hiker. When I started researching the trail while planning a backpacking trip I looked through many, many books and one of the best I found was the“Guide to the John Muir Trail” by Thomas Winnett and Kathy Morey.

The book is full of maps, trail descriptions in both directions, and a mileage/altitude chart to help you plan your trip whether you’re just doing short hikes on the trail or you’re planing on thru hiking the whole thing.Check it out. This is one you’re definitely going to want to add to your library.

  • Good stuff! I picked this book up at REI today after reading your report. JMT is calling my name. Next year!

  • The John Muir Trail is on my list of must do before I die trips. I have been on a few miles of it here and there, but my dream is to hit the entire trail for a couple of weeks or longer.
    Thanks for keeping this excellent Yosemite information blog going.

  • thanks for the tip on JMT – have hiked on it over Glen Pass and planning to do entire trail N – S in 2007; working on getting the wife psyched up to come with me.

  • I am planning on following the trail and was looking for a good guide. Thanks for the link, I will be buying this.

  • I couldn’t understand some parts of this article re Not Going To Want To Miss, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
