Overview

Book
One of the finest hikes in North America, the John Muir Trail won't disappoint. Hike your way from south to north, cross through three national parks, follow the rugged spine of California's High Sierra and hike the highest peak in the lower 48 states, Mount Whitney. Climb over 13,000ft passes, wander beneath high alpine peaks, and traverse beautiful meadows and forested river valleys. The spectacular scenery is combined with the clement weather of California and warm summer temperatures. For all participants this will be a trip of a lifetime and one to be remembered for years to come.
