Declared as one of the top five hiking trails on the planet by National Geographic’s Adventure magazine, the John Muir Trail (JMT) runs a spectacular 211 miles from fabled Yosemite Valley to the foot of Mount Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48. Along the way from Yosemite, the JMT takes in Kings Canyon and Sequoia national parks, the Inyo National Forest, and the Devils Postpile National Monument. The only way to experience this world-class trail is by foot, and this new edition of Day and Section Hikes: John Muir Trail, by Kathleen Dodge and Jordan Summers, is here to guide you the entire way, whether you're out for one of the day hikes, for a few days on a section hike, or tackling the entire trail.

The John Muir Trail (JMT) is one of the world's most spectacular treks and is North America's best known mid-distance walking trail. It runs for 216 miles through the high Sierra Nevada mountains of California, from Yosemite Valley (El Capitan and Half-Dome) to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,496ft), the highest peak in the US outside Alaska. The route is described in 21 day stages. All you need to know to plan and prepare for your trip is contained within this guide, 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.

Walter Starr, Jr., was a life member of the Sierra Club who ardently loved the High Sierra. He could not rest until he had seen it all - and then he wanted others to see it, to enjoy it, and to be inspired by it as he had been. So he made notes of practical directions to the John Muir Trail, a high-country trail that runs from Mount Whitney to Yosemite National Park. Although Starr did not live to take part in the final preparation of his guidebook, so thoroughly was his work done that it was possible to publish it very nearly in the form that he had planned. The preparation was done by his father, Walter Starr, who also was well acquainted with High Sierra trails. In the introduction to his book, Walter Starr, Jr., wrote: "By joining the United States Geological Survey maps of the region from Yosemite National Park to the headwaters of the Kern - a distance of more than one hundred and fifty miles - one will observe a continuous strip of blue lakes running down the map immediately west of the Sierra Crest. Through the heart of this blue strip winds the famous John Muir trail with laterals leading to it from the east and west, some of them vying with the Muir Trail itself in scenic grandeur." Acting on the suggestion contained in these lines of his son, Walter Starr had a map made for the book showing the trails and approaches the author so well describes. This classic guide covers: Keys to trail descriptions and map references How to obtain a wilderness permit Yosemite National Park Region Middle Fork of San Joaquin River Region South Fork of San Joaquin River Region North, Middle, and South Fork of Kings River Region Sequoia National Park Region
