Backpacker Magazine calls the John Muir Trail (JMT) "America's Most Scenic Trail". Travelling 220 miles from Yosemite Valley to Mount Whitney, the Sierras provide spectacular views as well as challenging hiking. This north-south path crosses several passes over 10,000 feet on its way to Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States. Four-time veterans of the JMT, Ellen and Larry will share beautiful photography along with stories of their trip preparation and what it takes to successfully cover this trail.
