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.
If you’re the sort who likes to go backpacking or camping with that special someone, hit the trail with the Backcountry Bed Duo 600, the new 2-season bag from Sierra Designs.
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.
When I hiked the JMT, I didn’t carry an ice axe. But if I had, I would have wanted to carry the CAMP USA Corsa Nanotech Ice Axe.
If you’ve always wanted to hike the JMT, do yourself a favor and bookmark this great John Muir Trail Preparation Guide from Trail to Summit.
