Last Summer, I hiked about 70 Miles of the John Muir trail with my buddy Dennis Smith. In preparation for the trip, I did a ton of research about the trail, the Sierras, trekking, gear and light hiking ethic. There was a lot of information out there and it was sometimes hard to track down. I’ve pull together some of the most useful tips in a real short bullet point format. Here it is in case people find it of use.
