If you want bragging rights to hiking the John Muir Trail, but don’t want to lug your gear, here’s a trip just for you.
Mountain Travel Sobek has put together a 13-day summer expedition that will take you northbound for 103 miles along the famous Pacific Crest Trail (it overlaps the JMT), from Florence Lake to Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. You’ll wear only a daypack; mules will tote your gear and professional packers will set up camp daily and await your arrival. (You are expected to set up your own tent, filter water, etc.). Mountain guides will lead your trek.
Dates: July 26-Aug. 7, Aug. 18-30.
