John Muir Trail: Onion Valley to South Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This stretch of the John Muir Trail (JMT) between the Kearsarge Pass and Bishop Pass Trails is one of the most scenic along the 210-mile route. Backpackers must cross three 12,000-foot passes en route—Glen, Pinchot, and Mather—all of which provide fine vantages from which to observe the length and breadth of the High Sierra. Additionally, hikers will encounter three “holes”—Woods Creek, South Fork Kings River, and Le Conte Canyon. The trail also follows a lengthy romp up a portion of Middle Fork Kings River."
