    Hi Ray,
    Thank you for this! I am headed NOBO and the itinerary is complete for the entry at Kearsarge to MTR but this was the missing part. It helps me tremendously. I have your book and will take with me on my iPhone for reference as well as Elizabeth Wenk’s NOBO version. It’s my first time at sixty one feeling frisky and ready for the challenge and the beauty.
    Warmly,
    Jeanne Peffley

      How did your hike go? I am also doing my first JMT, and am always looking for input. Bill

    Excellent suggestions. Particularly for those who have not done the trail, it is a well-thought, reasonable and maximum impact itinerary.

    How is it possible to make a reservation a year out for Tuolumne meadows (or anything else) but not get a trail permit outside of 6 months? Other than that, looks like a really nice itinerary. Now tell me how to get the time off…

    […] Last week I took you through the first half of what I consider to be a great itinerary for a thru-hiker who wants to successfully finish the hike with a minimum of pain and suffering, spend nights in scenic and interesting places, average around twelve miles a day (except for the last day), and work in some rest days and half days. Let’s continue. […]
