If you want to hike the John Muir Trail, you’re going to a wilderness permit from Yosemite National Park. But how do you get one?
When driving CA-2 (the Angeles Crest Highway), it’s critical to always remember one thing — you’re on a mountain, and if you lose control of your vehicle, there’s a very real chance you’ll drive right off of it.
Puck Walsh, a man who calls himself a thru-hiker in training (as are we all), hiked the John Muir Trail in the summer of 2014. He took a picture of the trail every half-mile (!) and shot a 360-degree video at the top of every pass.
To help non-JMT hikers enjoy some of the other tails within Yosemite National Park, the National Park Service has issued a new interim exit quota system, which took effect February 2, 2015.
