John Muir Trail Data Book - UPDATED
Elizabeth Wenk


A derivative of the comprehensive Wilderness Press guidebook John Muir Trail by Sierra expert Elizabeth Wenk, this data book is perfect for the weight-conscious hiker. A brief introductory section provides planning data, including information on permits, trailhead transport, and food resupplies. This is followed by on-the-trail information, including custom-made topo maps, elevation profiles, data tables, and labeled panoramas from prominent passes. There are tables for trail junctions, nearly 300 campsites, ranger stations, food-storage lockers, and lateral trails accessing the JMT. All tables include GPS waypoints, cumulative distances (given for both southbound and northbound), and elevation. The campsite table has long been a favorite with JMT hikers and has been comprehensively updated with new campsites and information on fire restrictions. The two-color topo maps, including both the trail and surrounding ridges, are scaled and framed with a JMT hiker in mind. The trails shown on the maps are derived from GPS tracks, and the data from the tables is plotted onto the maps for quick reference. Additional maps are provided for certain trailheads and difficult-to-navigate areas, such as Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows, the Reds Meadow and Devils Postpile area, the regions around Lake Thomas Edison and Vermilion Valley Resort, and Lone Pine. The labeled panoramas allow hikers to easily identify nearby peaks during well-earned breaks atop passes. If you would like detailed information on planning for your trip, considerations for hiking in the Sierra Nevada, or a trail description, those are only available in the comprehensive John Muir Trail book.

NOTES:
Here are two new maps to help you navigate the southern end (to Whitney Portal) of the John Muir Trail, including two trailheads about 20 miles south, shown on the Cottonwood Map:

One Best Hike: Mount Whitney, 2nd edition
Elizabeth Wenk


Everything you need to know to successfully hike California's highest peak.

As the highest mountain in the lower 48 states, California's 14,505-foot Mt. Whitney is on the "life list" for many hikers. And it's no wonder: The views from the top of the 21-mile round-trip Mt. Whitney Trail are unbeatable, extending across the jagged granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the expansive Owens River Valley and beyond.

While tremendously rewarding, this hike is demanding even for experienced trekkers. Would-be hikers need to be prepared for the altitude, long distance, elevation gain, mountain weather, and other potential dangers. One Best Hike: Mt. Whitney, by experienced hiker and author Elizabeth Wenk, is a step-by-step guide that will tell you exactly how to tackle this trip with confidence.

Your Family Guide to Hiking with Dogs

  • The lure of playing outside used to get kids up and moving. Today, however, mesmerized youth are plugged in to technology and connected by the web. They are as good as strapped to their chairs.

    Not to despair. The effort to roll America’s youth off of the couch and back outside, launched by the White House in 2010, now takes on all the authority of a kid’s own best friend—the family dog. The Trail Hound’s Handbook, aims to turn kids on to nature and hiking by introducing them to the highly skilled, naturally enthusiastic trail guide that is the family dog. The book encourages kids 8-15 years old to venture out, whatever their level of hiking experience, empowering them with:

  • Tips for planning dog-powered hikes
  • Basic hiking etiquette, safe practices, and rules
  • An appreciation for every dog’s unique wilderness skills
  • Clues to recognizing wildlife along the trail
  • Assorted text "kibble and bits" to make hiking with dogs simple and fun

  • Employing full color photos, whimsical but easy-to-read typefaces, and succinct copy, The Trail Hound’s Handbook reinvents the hiking guidebook as a pet-focused, outdoor activity guide for kids and their families. With a lighthearted voice and a slew of fun facts, the format provides immediate pay-off to the curious hiking novice and dog-loving kid, as well as valuable, common-sense skills to support a lifetime of outdoor adventure.

    The book’s companion website, KidsHikeDogsHike.com invites young trail hounds to share their own dog-powered adventures with the world. Like the book, the website aims to keep the topic fun and dynamic, offering select news, and useful resource links, as well as fun, related videos and activities.
