Activity Notes

Follow in the steps of John Muir as we take his ~220 mile namesake trail from the top of Mt Whitney (14,494') to the Yosemite Valley, traversing the beautiful and scenic high Sierra's. Outing dates are tentative pending obtaining the needed permit.

Highlights of the trek include multiple >10,000' passes, alpine lakes, jaw dropping scenery and the summit of Mt Whitney. The five to six participants will need to be in good physical condition and have experience in at least one 100 mile (or greater) trek and at least one 12,000' peak or pass. We will be traveling light and fast, ~20 miles<br> per day with elevation gains > 5000' on some days and a majority of the hike taking place at over 8000'. The cost of the outing is TBD and depends on number of participants and will include permit fee's, all lodging from and to Portland, resupply costs, and transportation from Yosemite Valley to the trailhead but does not include gas/car pool costs from Portland to Yosemite Valley. A $140 deposit will be required upon acceptance. Contact the leader Gary Bishop (gbish90@hotmail.com) for more information.
