Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Running from Mount Whitney to Yosemite Valley in the Sierra Nevada, 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 completely updated edition of this Sierra classic includes significant information found nowhere else. The new John Muir Trail meticulously describes the entire trail and is written for today's hikers. The book includes GPS coordinates, not only 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 all the trail's ups and downs.

Book News Annotation:

California's John Muir Trail stretches 212 miles from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley. Dividing the trail into 13 sections, Wenk, an experienced backpacker, describes the entire trail, both northbound and southbound, and gives detailed directions and UTM coordinates for important junctions, lateral trails, campsites, bear boxes, and points of interest. Each trail section also includes an elevation profile and a chart listing elevations, distance from the previous point, and total mileage. Wenk gives advice on planning and preparing for a trip, with information on permits, gear and supplies, nearby towns and resupply points, and bears. An appendix offers 13 color topographic maps from the John Muir Trail Map-Pack by Tom Harrison Maps. Numerous b&w photos are also included. Wenk teaches biology at Cerro Coso Community College.
