Day and Section Hikes: John Muir Trail

The John Muir Trail, a dream of many hikers and backpackers is one of the best long distance hiking trails in California – if not in the whole US. 211 miles long, the trail leads from the Yosemite Valley to Mount Whitney. You will experience mountains up to 14,000 feet high, a landscape sprinkled with countless lakes, canyons and breathtaking granite cliffs.

However, who has the time to hike 211 miles? Kathleen Dodge wrote a book “Day and Section Hikes: John Muir Trail” and it is for people who do not have the time to hike the whole trail in one shot.
