Ask Me: How Early in the Season Can I Hike the John Muir Trail?
I hope you’re doing great. I had a quick question for you regarding the JMT. I’ve read in Backpacker Magazine that you recommend late August/early September as the best time of the year to hike the trail. What’s the earliest in the season one could do the trail?
Last year I became a Registered Maine Guide and am now devoting time to guiding wilderness canoe expeditions in Maine (and soon in Canada!). So I’m looking for ways to strategically get my personal trips in, between my “professional” river trips. Any advice would be welcome.
