John Muir Trail

Wilderness Vagabond Trip Reports
Conceived in the late 1800's, the 212 mile John Muir Trail (JMT) follows the backbone of the High Sierra in eastern California. Initial appropriations from the California legislature managed to complete all but two difficult sections by the time the Great Depression brought construction to a halt. After 46 years in the process, William Colby, secretary of the Sierra Club, announced the trails completion, a fitting tribute to the man that called this region of the High Sierra home.
