Running from Mount Whitney to Yosemite Valley in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the 212-mile John Muir Trail passes through some of the most dramatic mountain terrain in the United States. Each year thousands of backpackers traverse some or all of the trail, relying on Wilderness Press's John Muir Trail. The new edition of this Sierra classic has been completely updated and revamped, and includes significant information found nowhere else. The new John Muir Trail meticulously describes the entire trail and is written for today's hikers, many of whom rely on GPS units. The book includes GPS coordinates for every junction, but also for every established campsite, bear box, and mountain pass that the trail crosses. The guide has separate descriptions for northbound and southbound hikers; for each direction a junction chart shows elevations, distance from previous point and total mileage. Incorporates Tom Harrison's 13 section maps of the trail that JMT hikers have relied on for years.
