The John Muir Trail

Preparing for the John Muir Trail felt like a pretty daunting task and I sometimes struggled to find the information that I needed. Whilst I found a lot of blogs and websites, they were often geared towards people who already had backpacking experience, who weren’t coming from abroad, and who were willing to cut their toothbrush in half to reduce their pack weight.

When I got home I decided to share the things that I learnt along the way, to help other newbies take on the John Muir Trail. I hope you find it useful.
