John Muir Trail Map

Getting your permit

Okay, got the permit yesterday but not without some angst. I did have to call Inyo NF for clarification because I kept getting "timed out" due to it taking too long to fill in all the itinerary campsites (30 days worth)- some didn't exist so I kept getting the message that I had too many "other/unknown" categories. The guy at Inyo said, make the permit for three days with the proper enter and exit locations, but only for three days. The computer doesn't know that its impossible to walk from Cottonwood Lakes TH to Tuolumne Meadows in three days. Once you secure the permit and you have the confirmation email, then go back and edit the permit and add the itinerary as needed. FYI, Onion Valley, KTR, and Red's are not listed so you'll have to pick a site close by from the list or choose "other/unknown" from the dropdown list. To be sure, its not an exact listing but is "approved" after submitting and it keeps me on the trail as long and I want and from the right start and finish points. Another point about the list: "SEKI" is an acronym for "Sequoia and Kings Canyon" so if you don't find your campsite on the main list, stop at "SEKI" (it is in the alphebetical order list) and check there. Also, at the end of the list, you'll find your Yosemite NP campsite lists. Just remember, if you take too much time, you'll be timed out and have to start all over - it's really a pain if you don't have everything ordered and can breeze through the list without delay. Hope this helps someone out there. 08/15 to 09/15 yay!!! See you out there and hapy trails. ijk
