The John Muir Trail is perhaps the most famous trail in America. The trail passes through a land of 13,000-foot and 14,000-foot peaks, of soaring granite cliffs, of lakes literally by the thousands, of canyons 5000 feet deep. It is a land where man's trails touch only a tiny percentage of the total area, so that by leaving the Muir Trail you can find utter solitude. Perhaps best of all, it is a land blessed with the mildest, sunniest climate of any major mountain range in the world. This guidebook describes the trail both north-south and south-north. It gives point-to-point mileages both ways to the nearest tenth of a mile. Its twenty-eight two-color maps are based on corrected U. S. G. S. topo maps, and contain hundreds of updating changes in this second edition. -- Midwest Book Review
