From the Inside Flap:

Brand New Maps, Notable Peaks Highlight Newest JMT Guide

Running from Mount Whitney to Yosemite Valley in the Sierra Nevada, the 212-mile John Muir Trail passes through some of the most dramatic mountain terrain in the United States--massive granite peaks, dizzying waterfalls, pristine alpine lakes, and vibrant meadows filled with wildflowers.

Each year, thousands of backpackers traverse some or all of the trail, having relied on Sierra veteran Lizzy Wenk's John Muir Trail: The Essential Guide to Hiking America's Most Famous Trail, now in its 5th edition from Wilderness Press, to guide them along the way.

The definitive one-stop shop for the JMT, the new John Muir Trail has information found nowhere else. It meticulously describes the entire passage, with detailed directions for readers of all levels of familiarity, as well as UTM coordinates for important junctions, lateral trails, nearly 300 campsites, food-storage boxes, and points of interest.

Probably the most significant update to John Muir Trail, though, consists of 16 brand new, original topographic maps, created by the author, incorporated throughout the trail's 13 sections, as well as a list of 15 side trips to nearby, notable peaks. Panoramic vista point photographs label summits on the skyline as hikers make their journey.

About 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.
