John Muir Trail Map

The Plan

Well I better finally get an entry into this journal. I am planning on finishing up my JMT trip I started in 2010. 2010 was a heavy snow year plus some unextpected stops kept me from finishing the JMT. You can read about that in my 2010 JMT journal. So I will be starthing this starting this trip at Long Lake over Bishop Pass and eventually getting to Mt. Whitney.

This year I will be hiking with my Austin again. One of his friends Ian will be joining us. One of my high school friends Dan, and possibly one of his friends will be joining us also. Planning the logististics of this hike seem to be much tougher than the first trip, well maybe I just forgot how hard it was the first time. Right now the plan is to fly into San Diego on July 5th. Have some fun in Escondido area until the 8th or 9th. Then get a ride with my parents to LA to meet with Dan. On the 9th we will head to Whitney Portal to get bear cans for Dan and Ian. Drive to Bishop, get permits, spend the night at Four Jeffreies campground. We will start our hike on the 10th.

We plan to exit via. Kearsarge pass on July 15th and take a day off. Dan will leave at this time. We will stay in Bishop on the 16th with my sister and her family. Get back on the trail on the 17th. Finish our hike on the 20th.

With all that said I know how things can get on the trail and we will have to see how things go.

Ben & Austin Hike The John Muir Trail - Part 2

The John Muir Trail passes through a land of 13,000 and 14,000 foot peaks, of lakes in the thousands, and of canyons and granite cliffs. It's also a land blessed with the mildest, sunniest climate of any major mountain range in the world. The John Muir Trail is 211 miles long and runs (mostly in conjunction with the PCT) from Yosemite Valley to Mt Whitney, in California.
