    We stayed there for two nights during our hike last year, loved it so much we are going back for two nights to finish the thru hike this summer! (we had to skip reds meadow to MTR due to illness, so we hiked into MTR from Florence lake to finish). One thing worth noting is that the staff there is SUPER friendly, they really make you feel like you’re at home. During our stay last year, we did a half day of horse riding on our zero day. We were very sore the next day for the 15 mile hike south out of MTR, so keep that in mind. It was quite fun though.

    Certainly sounds agreeable to me. I guess it is either MTR or VVR. That’s got to be a tough choice, from what I have read. Though, if I understand correctly, MTR has the advantage of being “right on the trail.” Appreciate the first hand report! Puts MTR on my itinerary.

    Ray, I completely agree with your review of MTR. I’ll be spending another zero day there this summer on my 440 mile hike this summer (my 9th doing the JMT but my 8th being able to book an overnight at MTR and about my 7th being able to book back-to-back two nights at MTR so I can have a full zero day there.

    I completely agree with you! We booked two nights at MTR last summer during our SOBO and had an amazing time. The highlight was definitely the zen hot spring baths…I, too, want to recreate this at home! We are planning on staying there another two nights this summer during our NOBO. Thanks for all you do!
