Ep. 12 - Hiking the John Muir Trail (Part 1: the Prep)


This past year, I went on the Hike Podcast and shared my story of hiking the John Muir trail (JMT). Lori, the host, pinged me a few months later and told me that it was the highest listened to podcast of the season.


It only makes sense that I come onto my own podcast and share a more in-depth journey of how I planned for the JMT (Part 1) and detail the thirteen days on the trail (Part 2).

In Part 1, I detail the JMT route (miles, elevation, remoteness), how to plan your hike (permits, resupplies, research resources), provide a gear shakedown, and highlight my physical training leading up to day 1. See photos above for some of the prep and training, and share questions via the website or social media!
