Alan Castle's walking guide to the classic route through California's Sierra Nevada - from the leading walking guide publisher Cicerone Press
The John Muir Trail (JMT) is a world-famous trek and is North America's best known walking trail. It runs for 216 miles through California's high Sierra Nevada Mountains, from Yosemite Valley (El Capitan and Half-Dome) to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,496ft), the highest peak in the US outside Alaska. This guide will help you plan and prepare for your trip with extensive know-how tips, from obtaining trekking permits to buying trek food and forwarding food caches along the trail. Abundant advice is given on such topics as dealing with inquisitive bears, coping with altitude, negotiating river crossings, as well as tips on booking transport to and from the trailheads and on what equipment to take. In addition there is a detailed description of the flora and fauna of this remarkable region. The walking trail, which is named after the great 19th-century Scottish naturalist, conservationist and writer John Muir, is entirely through the unspoilt wilderness of the American West and passes through three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.
