Day & Section Hikes: John Muir Trail (Menasha Ridge Press)

"Arguably one of the most beautiful and challenging stretches along both the John Muir and Pacific Crest trails, this section traverses the renowned Evolution Valley, a remote high-altitude wonderland of jagged peaks, glacial cirques, stark alpine lakes, and wildflower-strewn meadows. And the remote locale, combined with some difficult climbs, nearly ensures some degree of solitude. It’s possible to begin your journey with a soak in nearby hot springs before you rise through Evolution Valley and the lofty heights of Muir Pass (11,955 feet) in the heart of Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks. After dropping down into Le Conte Canyon, your journey leaves the JMT to venture east through the sparse forest and granite bowls of Dusy Basin and up to amazing Bishop Pass (11,972 feet). Descending toward Owens Valley, enjoy the region’s many high-altitude lakes and meadows. Outstanding features: Blayney Hot Springs, Evolution Valley, Muir Pass, Le Conte Canyon, Dusy Basin, Bishop Pass"

"This popular shuttle trip traverses the length of Bear Creek’s canyon, takes in pristine alpine scenery at Medley Lakes, descends past alpine lakes, and eventually reaches Blayney Hot Springs. The last miles of the trip tour wildflower-carpeted meadows before arriving at Florence Lake. It’s an excellent longer trip for the intermediate or advanced hiker."
