I'm planning a North->South trek of the John Muir Trail this summer.
I have a problem --- The trail guide for the JMT is currently out of
print/stock, and the new edition won't be available until sometime
in April. I'd like to find out what permits I will need, and
how to obtain them in advance. Any information is appreciated!
You can request a permit for your North-South hike, from Yosemite N.P., up
to 24 weeks prior to your day of departure. 50% of Yosemitie's backcountry
permits are set aside for advanced registration. The remaining are had by a
first come, first serve basis, if I'm not mistaken, as early as the day
prior to departure. Check-out the Yosemite Interpretive Assn. Website for
specifics. This permit will allow entry into all units the JMT passes
through, except the Mt. Whitney Zone. When filling-out your Request for
Wilderness Permit, mention that you will be entering the Whitney Zone and
request a Whitney stamp be placed on your permit. If I wasn't buried in the
middle of work, I'd dig-up the Yosemite Interpretive Assn. URL and a phone
number for you. A search on those words though should find the site quickly.
