California's John Muir Trail stretches 212 miles from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley. Dividing the trail into 13 sections, Wenk, an experienced backpacker, describes the entire trail, both northbound and southbound, and gives detailed directions and UTM coordinates for important junctions, lateral trails, campsites, bear boxes, and points of interest. Each trail section also includes an elevation profile and a chart listing elevations, distance from the previous point, and total mileage. Wenk gives advice on planning and preparing for a trip, with information on permits, gear and supplies, nearby towns and resupply points, and bears. An appendix offers 13 color topographic maps from the John Muir Trail Map-Pack by Tom Harrison Maps. Numerous b&w photos are also included. Wenk teaches biology at Cerro Coso Community College.
