The John Muir Trail, often referred to as the JMT, is a hiking trail that spans 213.7 miles, although your actual mileage will vary depending on your resupply strategy and where you decide to begin and end your hike. The JMT will take you through arguably one of the most beautiful mountain hikes in the world and through the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
I hope to share with you the basics needed to complete your own John Muir Trail experience, or apply these tips to another trail you have in mind. It won’t always be easy, but it will always be worth it.
