The John Muir Trail is a 211 long trail which stretches from valley floor of Yosemite National Park to the
summit of Mount Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous 48 states).
The trail is concurrent with the Pacific Crest Trail for much of its length, as it goes through the high Sierras, maintaining an elevation of 8,000 feet or higher. The trail was completed in 1938 and named for John Muir, who was a champion of the trail and one of the founding members of the Sierra Club.

The JMT is one of those trails that consistently ranks very high on hiking bucket lists. It should. It is incredibly scenic with views and landscapes that are hard to find elsewhere in the US. The High Sierra’s are most likely Beardoh!’s favorite stretch of land.
