John Muir Trail Map

Rockies instead this year

A combination of schedule conflict and insane snowpack conditions has forced our little group to bail on the JMT this year. Instead, we're going to the Rockies for a 7 day hike crossing the Continental divide twice for about 50 miles. We're choosing to think of this as a warm-up hike for the JMT next year, permit gods willing. I'll be calling the NPS folks at Yosemite to return our entry slots at Lyell Canyon on 6/27 Monday. I love the community of hikers on this site, helping each other toward a common goal. It's made the process less daunting and given essential information to us. Thank you.

Flatlander On The JMT

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.
