John Muir Trail (JMT)
4.5 Days on weekends (members only)
Permits are applied to enter on 6/9 and exit on 6/11. We will set off on 6/8 afternoon, check in a motel near Mammoth Lakes. In the early morning of 6/9, we will take the permits and start the JMT backpacking adventure. The Thousand Lakes is our base camp for 6/9 and 6/10 nights. On 6/11 morning, we will strike camp and exit JMT at Tuolumne trail head, taking the shuttle back to Mammoth Lakes (The shuttle is only open at weekends) . However, the shuttle comes back so late, 8:30pm to Mammoth. Therefore, if everybody wants to stay one more night in Mammoth, that would be great. 6/12 is a great day to relax in the wild hot springs. Six spots for members only
