JMT trip report and photos from fellow JMTers David and Rebekah, including detailed trail profile, gear list, etc. Extremely thorough. Check it out!

The John Muir Trail. Pages dedicated to everything you need to know to plan your own JMT through-hike. Or at least dream and drool over the possibilities. :-) The transportation discussion is outdated however. See below - life just got much easier for us!

YARTS: Regional Yosemite shuttle service. Finally! Use it, love it. ;-)

The JMT Journals. Journals and progress updates of JMT (John Muir Trail) through-hikes.

Pacific Crest Trail Association. Dedicated to the PCT, the one mega-trail I will through-hike before I croak. Hopefully the others too, but ya gotta start somewhere. ;-)
