This is a guidebook for walking the John Muir Trail (JMT) - North America's best known mid-distance walking trail. It runs for 216 miles through the high Sierra Nevada mountains of California, from Yosemite Valley to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,496ft), the highest peak in the US outside Alaska. The walking trail (named after the great 19th-century Scottish naturalist John Muir) is entirely through the unspoilt wilderness of the American West and passes through three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The John Muir Trail is one of the world's most spectacular treks, and thorough planning is required to walk it successfully. All you need to know to plan and prepare for your trip is contained within this guidebook, from obtaining trekking permits to buying trek food and forwarding food caches along the trail. Abundant advice is given on such topics as dealing with inquisitive bears, coping with altitude, negotiating river crossings, as well as tips on booking transport to and from the trailheads and on what equipment to take. In addition there is a detailed description of the flora and fauna of this remarkable region.
