Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Authorities might dispute its length, but the John Muir Trail is indisputably one of the awesome backpacker routes on the continent. This historic Sierra Nevada mountain range route extends from Yosemite Valley's Happy Isles trailhead to the summit of Mount Whitney on the outskirts of Sequoia National Park and Inyo National Forest. Three previous versions of this trusty paperback have established its reputation as the essential guide to this popular trail. This edition, the first in nine years, has been completely updated, revamped, and enlarged. Additional sections describe all "bail out" and resupply options, including towns and resorts accessed by the trail's lateral routes.
From the Publisher

"The very best way to get the most out of your experience in the wilderness is to understand it, and there is no better way to do that than to carry along Elizabeth Wenk’s John Muir Trail: The essential guide to hiking America’s most famous trail. The fifth edition has just been released and—to use a software analogy—it’s a major upgrade."
—Ray Rippel, author of the JMTbook (Planning your Thru-Hike of the John Muir Trail ebook)

Meet the Author


Since childhood, Elizabeth Wenk has hiked and climbed in the Sierra Nevada with her family. After she started college, she found excuses to spend every summer in the Sierra, with its beguiling landscape, abundant flowers, and near-perfect weather. During those summers, she worked as a research assistant for others and completed her own Ph.D. thesis research on the effects of rock type on alpine plant distribution and physiology. But much of the time she hikes simply for leisure. Obsessively wanting to explore every bit of the Sierra, she has hiked thousands of on- and off-trail miles and climbed more than 600 peaks in the mountain range. Recently she has directed her wanderings to gather data for several Wilderness Press titles and to introduce her two young daughters to the wonders of the mountains. She lives in Sydney, Australia.
