The Worlds Best Hiking - John Muir Trail


The John Muir Trail (JMT) is a famed long-distance hiking trail traversing the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the United States. For about 260 km (160 miles), the trail follows the same path as the longer Pacific Crest Trail, which continues north to Canada. The trail is named after naturalist John Muir, who was an early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. The JTM provides several opportunities for dayhikers, while completing the entire trail takes about three weeks.

"The John Muir Trail is the premier hiking trail in the United States. The trail starts in America's treasure, Yosemite National Park, and continues 215 miles through the Ansel Adams Wilderness, Sequoia National Park, King's Canyon National Park, and ends at the highest peak in continental United States, Mount Whitney at 14,496 ft."

  1. This is a backwoods trail which goes from Yosemite to Mt. Yosemite contains nearly seventy miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. If you ever plan to hike the John Muir Trail as a continuous hike, you only need one wilderness permit for the entire trip. I've done it as a through hike before niagara falls bus tour and can honestly say it’s one of the most unbelievable long backpacking trips I've ever done in my life.
