In Episode 1 (the inaugural episode) of the N2Backpacking podcast series, I speak with Glenn and Susan about their adventures on the John Muir Trail (JMT) in 2006. The Helmet and Doughgirl talk about their preparations, planning, logistics, gear and favorite stops on the John Muir Trail which traverses a portion of the High Sierra in Northern California.
The John Muir Trail follows the Sierra Nevada mountain range for 210 miles and through Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks. The northern terminus is located at Happy Isles in Yosemite Valley, and the southern terminus is located on the summit of Mount Whitney (14,505 feet) which is the highest point in the Lower 48.
