I recently realized that after all my set up and talk about gear to use on a John Muir trail solo hike, there was no payoff. So here it is.
TL;DR: I finished.
John Muir Trail Solo Hike: By the Numbers
I started at about 9:45 am on Sunday, June 10 and finished about 2:00 pm on Friday, June 22.
I walked about 213 miles in 13 days, which averaged just under 16 and a half miles each day. My longest day was almost 25 miles, my shortest just under 13. I didn’t keep track of the elevation loss and gain, but I can say it was pretty significant, especially near the end.
Over the next few weeks (months?) I’ll write here about the various tools, gear, and utilities that helped me finish my trek – maybe it’ll help you on your next adventure.
